Grid Ref : SX6471077170
Summary : The remains of a cairn on a gentle east facing slope on Lakehead Hill. The cairn survives as a small 4.5 metre diameter mound standing up to 0.2 metres high. In the centre of the cairn there is a three sided cist, orientated NNW to SSE, measuring internally 1.1 metres long by 0.75 metres wide and 0.42 metres deep. When this cist was part excavated in 1914 by the Dartmoor Exploration Committee a pit containing charcoal was found. Scheduled.
More information : (SX 6471 7717) Cist (NR) (1)

A cist of which only three stones remain (Plan). In 1914 the
two side stones which had fallen inwards were restored. In
the centre was a pit, 15" diameter and 11" deep, containing
charcoal. No other finds were made. (2-3)

In a cleared area on the forested ridge to the S.E. of Lakehead
Hill, at 408 m.O.D., is the remains of a cist with one end-stone
and the coverstone missing. It protrudes slightly above the
surface with the open end towards the N.W. It measures 1.1m. by
0.7m. and 0.4m. deep and is in fair condition; there are no
traces of a cairn.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on M.S.D. (4)

SX 64717717. A cist and slight cairn lie in a clearing within a Forestry Commission plantation south east of Lakehead Hill. The cist is as recorded by authority 4. It lies slightly north west of the centre of a low mound, probably the remains of an enclosing cairn. The latter is quite faint and irregular measuring about 4.5m in diameter and a maximum of 0.25m high. The site is protected by a ring of antiquity markers. (5)
