Monument Number 443188

Hob Uid: 443188
Location :
South Hams
Grid Ref : SX6821071560
Summary : A cluster of possibly 6 clearance cairns immediately west of Venford Reservoir. They are assumed to date to medieval period or later. They average 2.5 metres in diameter and 0.3 metres high.
More information : At SX 68217156, in a crest situation at 315m OD is
a small cairn. It is 4.0m in diameter and 0.4m high with a stone
content, now turf and heather covered, but no particular
features. It is within a reave system and 3.0m from a north to
south lynchet. If it is a clearance cairn it is the only one in
the area and for this reason alone it seems more likely to have
a sepulchral or ritual significance.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on PFD. (1)

SX 68227155. One of four small clearance cairns within the medieval and later field system W of Venford reservoir. This is not a prehistoric feature. The other cairns are recorded as SX 67 SE 246.
