Monument Number 442226

Hob Uid: 442226
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Cornwood
Grid Ref : SX6234061900
Summary : Supposed stone row (not an antiquity)
More information : (SX 62436209 - SX 62516195) Remains of stone row.
Thirty one stones in 530 feet, orientated northwest to southeast.
Gap of 108 feet in middle. (1)

These were stones removed to one side of the track to allow a
carriage to pass during the 19th century at the order of
Lord Blatchford. The writer is very much mistaken in thinking
this is a stone row (a). (2)

These stones, an average 0.7m by 0.4m and 0.6m high, lie in
a straight line parellel to a modern ditch and track on a gentle,
clitter strewn slope at 305m above OD. Many of the stones have
been drilled and split prior to their setting up, and further
stones, of similar nature, follow a sinuous course, parellel
to the track for about 400m to SX 62526171, and therefore
these stones cannot be regarded as an antiquity. (3)
