Monument Number 442461

Hob Uid: 442461
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6692007663
Summary : A cairn is alleged at this location but could not be located during field investigation.
More information : There is a cairn on the eastern slope of Riddon Ridge about 400 yards south west of Grendon Strip Plantation. The cairn was excavated in 1914 when a number of sherds were found in a cist amongst much wood charcoal. Cairn measures 12 feet diameter and 2.5 feet high. (1)

(SX 66927663) Cairn. (2)

SX 668764. Locality only. There is confusing ground evidence for the presence of a cairn in this area. There are several low, possibly stoney mounds but all are rather amorphous and resemble natural features. It is not possible to determine which is the feature examined by Burnard or that described by Butler (1991 136-137). (3,4)
