Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 442700

Hob Uid: 442700
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6499078260
Summary : Alleged cairn - no ground evidence.
More information : Remains of a 30ft diameter cairn at lat 50o 35' 16
1/2", long 3o 54' 27" (SX 64997826). "It is now distinctly less
prominent than it was in 1891". (1)

No cairn could be identified in the area indicated by Worth,
an east slope of rough pasture. There are a number of widely spread
shallow pits and amorphous rises or mounds, but these seem to have
resulted from surface quarrying. (2)

There is no ground evidence to suggest the presence of the cairn noted by Worth. The feature described by Grinsell (1978, 149) (3) is probably the nearby robbed hut circle SX 67 NW 70. (3-4)
