Hob Uid: 441303
Location :
South Hams
Grid Ref : SX6454059710
Summary : A cairn with a hollow at the centre and traces of a retaining circle. It has a diameter of 7 metres and a height of 0.3 metres.
More information : SX 64545971 Cairn with hollow at centre and traces of a retaining circle sited on a hill slope. Diameter 7m, height

Visited 1976. (1)

The cairn lies at about 286m OD and has been severely mutilated. It apears to have had a level base and a diameter of circa 11m. It now has a height of 0.7m on its SW side. The north and west sides give the appearance of foundations of a late building, although this may be fortuitous.

Around the cairn are 4 large slabs, one of which is set in the ground to a height of 0.6m (see plan). The area is fairly stone free and these stones are probably part of a former surrounding stone circle. (See GP).

Surveyed at 1:2500. (2)
