(SX 66096080) Cairn Circle (NR) (1)

A stone row, 300 yds S 41o W from Glasscombe Corner. The
southern 368 feet are a double row and the northern 212 feet
6 inches a single row. The northern part has lost no stones and
the change from double to single is abrupt and complete. At the
S.W. end are the remains of a cairn and at the NE. end is a
retaining circle with many of the stones fallen. It would appear
thus that there was a grave at either end of the row. The total
length from centre of circle to centre of cairn is 635 feet. (2)

Situated on the eastern slope of Piles Hill between 320.0 - 340.0m.
O.D. is a stone row partly double and partly single ending on
the remains of a cairn circle. The length of the double row is
111.0m. and of the single row 61.0m, the total length to the centre
of the cairn circle being 177.0m. The description and dimensions
by Worth are accurate. There is no trace of the cairn at the
south-west end of the row. None of the stones of the cairn
circle are standing and it is impossible therefore to give an
indication of its size.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on P.F.D. and at 1:1000 for AO Records. (3)
