Monument Number 442774

Hob Uid: 442774
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6163078250
Summary : Round cairn located between Longford Tor and Higher White Tor. The cairn survives as a flat-topped mound measuring 28 metres in diameter and standing up to 1.4 metres high.
More information : SX 617 786: Barrow between Longford Tor and Higher Tor. (1)

At SX 6165 7830 on the flat ridge between Longford Tor and Higher White Tor is a prominent swelling of the ground, approximately 40 metres in diameter and 1.5 metres in height, which at a distance has the appearance of a large spread barrow, especially as it occupies a 'false crest' position. Close inspection failed to reveal any stones or irregularities in the ground and its size and gradual merging with the hillside suggests that it is natural.

Not surveyed. (2)

As described by source (2) : this feature is not an antiquity, despite details in sources (3) and (4), (5). (3-5)
