Monument Number 441579

Hob Uid: 441579
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6176806839
Summary : A cairn was alleged at this location could no trace of it could be revealed during field investigation.
More information : (SX 61776839) Cist "Capstone 5 feet 8 inches by 5 feet 14 stones. Prostrate stones in circle, one over 8 feet high, one over 6 feet high, one over 3 feet high. Oriented 22 1/2o east of north. This is a little doubtful, the tinners might have made it." (1)

Does not exist. (2)

Nothing visible on air photograph. (3)

No cist could be found in this area in the vicinity of old
streamworks. In the rough pasture there are numerous naturally
disposed boulders and it seems likely that this is one of the
Rev H Breton's flights of fancy. His activities as a correspondent
for Crawford seem to have been from the First World War to about
1930. (4)

There is no ground evidence to suggest the presence of this feature. (5)
