Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 442575

Hob Uid: 442575
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6473079480
Summary : Stone Setting ?
More information : (SX 64737948) Standing Stones (NR) (1).

A group of six standing stones near an occupation road to
Hartyland (see plan).
'C', 'D', 'E' and 'F' are doubtful. There are similar isolated
stones to be found elsewhere in the field.
'X' (measuring 0.7m x 0.3m and is 0.7m high) and 'Y' (measuring
0.6m x 0.3m and is 1.3m high), do not appear to be in situ, but
could have well been standing stones (2-5).

SX 64737947. From the original OS 495 record cards, the differing accounts and positions of those stones over the past 83 years or more it is possible that none are now in their original positions as shown on the 1906 1:2500 (auth 1).
The present dimensions of the stones are shown in a table held in the archive but, it is impossible to confirm that this was a prehistoric site.

Stone 'A' - 0.7m high, 0.4m-0.7m wide, 0.35m thick. Upright.

'B' - 1.4m high, 0.5m wide, 0.2m-0.4m thick. Upright.

'C' - 0.5m high, 0.4m wide, 0.2m thick. Upright.

'D' - 0.9m long, 0.3m wide, 0.2m ? thick. Fallen lengthways in turf

'E' - 0.6m high, 0.4m wide, 0.2m thick. Leaning to N.

'F' - 0.5m x 0.3m x 0.3m ? Laid in turf. (6)

A further table of information on the site is held in the archive.
