Monument Number 442011

Hob Uid: 442011
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Ugborough
Grid Ref : SX6582060570
Summary : A circular pile of stones 4.5m. in diameter and 0.7m. high. The perimeter is demarcated by an apparently deliberately constructed ring of stones, none of which is earth-fast. Although the lower part of the cairn is slightly overgrown the most part is quite clear of any growth. This cairn may have a prehistoric origin but the impression is that of a collection for some recent purpose.
More information : (SX 656610) A group of stones, probably the remains
of a cist, were found by Mr. Carpenter on Piles Hill, 600 yards
west of Glasscombe Corner. (1)

(SX 65826057) Pile of Stones (NAT) (2)

A circular pile of stones 4.5m. in diameter and 0.7m. high, the
perimeter demarcated by an apparently deliberately constructed
ring of stones, none of which is earth-fast. Although the lower
part of the cairn is slightly overgrown the most part is quite
clear of any growth. This cairn may have a prehistoric origin
but the impression is that of a collection for some recent purpose.

Stone is not freely available on the surface and the pile would
be the result of extensive surface searching or digging.
