Monument Number 443337

Hob Uid: 443337
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6232073460
Summary : Alleged stone row
More information : (SX 62327346) Stone Row (NR). (1)

A single row of stones in Tor Royal Newtake, 98 ft in
length, with a "very doubtful southerly extension of a
further 210 ft". No cairn or barrow. (2)

This is not a stone row but 100 metres of a prehistoric field
wall, mostly discernible as a band of heather in an area of
long, matted, dead grass. The band is 1.0m. wide with occasional
protrusions of stone. The southern 30.0m. has a number of close
and even contiguous stones, at most 0.3m. high and at one point
there is a junction with a similar field wall which can be
traced for 80.0m. in curving fashion to the west and north-west.

There is, no doubt, a field system in the area which is
obscured in part by peat growth and in part by the very long
grass. More would probably be visible if the area was swaled.

Initial part surveyed at 1:10 000 on MSD. (3)

Stone row. (4)

These two linear stony banks are as identified and described (3). They lie between SX 62277350 - SX 62337346 and also SX 62327350 - SX 62347340 in an area of peat digging with little traces of surface stone.

They represent the remnants of a prehistoric field system and are similar to elements on Roundhill (SX 67 SW 98), also described as a stony row by R H Worth (auth 2). (5)
