Summary : A cairn lying on a gentle west facing slope of Bellever Tor. It survives as a 6 metre long by 5 metre wide mound standing up to 0.7 metres high. Two edge slabs on the northern side of the mound may represent the remnants of a kerb, which survives elsewhere as a buried feature. An upright stone slab situated 6.6 metres ESE of this cairn may be a contemporary standing stone. The stone measures 0.95 metres high and 0.8 metres wide at the base, tapering to 0.2 metres wide at the top. It is 0.28 metres thick and its long axis points towards the nearby cairn. Scheduled.
