Devon

Grid Ref : SX6358075460
Summary : Cairn with Cist
More information : (SX 63597546) Cist (NR) (1)

A cist within the remains of an approximately 9 ft diameter retaining
circle. The cist has no coverstone and its internal measurements are
3 ft 11 ins x 1 ft 3 ins and 1 ft 11 ins deep. (2)

On a south-west slope at 358m. O.D., in an area of rough grass, is the remains of a cairn with a cist. The cairn has diameters of 6.7m. by 8.4m. but there is now no evidence of the retaining circle mentioned by Worth. The cist aligned N/S, measures 1.2m. by 0.4m. and is 0.4m. deep. There is no trace of a coverstone. See ground photograph.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on M.S.D. and at 1:2500 (see plan). (3)

SX 63587546. This cairn and cist are described by authority 3 though a single inclined slab on the E margin of the cairn may be part of Worths retaining circle. The cairn is apparently turf built as no stone was identified by probing. (4)
