Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 442546

Hob Uid: 442546
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6428077330
Summary : Alleged Stone row recorded in 1946 but covered by a forestry plantation in 1979. At that time, 3 stones were visible, but it was uncertain whether they were part of the stone row. It may have been destroyed or covered by humus.
More information : A single row of stones, with its southern end at
long 3 Degrees 55' 2", lat 50 degrees 34' 44" (SX 64307728), extending 400 ft N 22 degrees W (to SX 64267740). There appears to be no associated cairn or barrow. (1)

The reported row lies within a forestry plantation and is either
destroyed or hidden by humus. Only three erect stones are visible
in the area and these could not be identified with certainty as
part of the row.

No survey action taken. (2)

SX 64287733. No evidence could be found of this stone row first recorded by Worth. The area is now occupied by mature conifers and the remains have either been destroyed or covered by loam. (3)

This stone allignment could not be found. The area has been clear felled, but substantial amounts of brash may be obscuring the alignment. If it survives and can be located, it would almost certainly be of natonal importance and should be considered for scheduling. (4)
