Monument Number 442243

Hob Uid: 442243
Location :
Devon
South Hams
Cornwood
Grid Ref : SX6261063530
Summary : Cist
More information : Cist No 90, at Renny Brook, SX 62636354. (1)

A cist was found some years ago on the north bank of the
Renny Brook and lying between the higher ford where the track
from Harrowthorn Gate to Erme Pound crosses, and the lower
ford, on the track from New Waste to the Yealm Valley (2). Three
sides of the grave are still in place; the third has been turned
back and lies parallel to its original position. To the south
of the cist, and about a foot away from the nearest point of the
buried side-stone, lies the displaced coverstone. This stone
has a greatest length of four feet and a greatest width of two
feet six inches (3). Internal dimensions, 36 inches long 15 inches
wide, and 26 inches deep (4). (2-4)

At SX 62616353 is a cist on a relatively flat area at 345.0m
OD. The cist measures 1.0m long by 0.7m wide and 0.5 deep and
is orientated northeast to southwest. The partly buried coverstone
is approximately 0.8m by 0.9m. Worth's survey is now incorrect as
the northerly stone has been removed and may be that which has
been placed centrally across the cist (see amended plan).

Surveyed 1:10 000 on PFD. (5)
