Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 443544

Hob Uid: 443544
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Gidleigh
Grid Ref : SX6570088960
Summary : The remains of two alleged cists are reported at this location. Recent field investigation could not locate them and therefore it is thought likely that they are probably natural features.
More information : (Area centred SX 65708896) Remains of two cists, each
surrounded by ruined circle 15 ft in diameter. The capstone
of the northern cist has apparently been moved, the southern
cist has is barely traceable. About three stones are erect,
the rest are half buried. (1). These cists are very dubious. (1-2)

Features identifiable as cists were not located during field
investigation. The indicated area falls in sloping open
moorland, peat covered, and thickly strewn with boulders.
Information supplied by Breton (1) for this locality, has
proved unreliable. It would therefore seem most likely that he
misidentified natural surface rock formations. (3)
