Monument Number 443622

Hob Uid: 443622
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Gidleigh
Grid Ref : SX6595108598
Summary : The site of a possible Bronze Age cairn.
More information : Worth mentions a small barrow 65 ft from the centre of
'Fourfold' cairn (68 NE 17) on the alignment of a double stone row
(SX 68 NE 16). On his plan it is described as a 'cairn'. (1)
Pettit describes it as "a small devastated cairn". (2)

There is nothing on the ground which can be identified as a
cairn though there has been no distrubance of the area in
recent years. (3)

'Cairn' south of Fourfold Circle now known to be part of reave. (4)

SX 65958599. Possible site of cairn. There is no ground evidence to suggest the presence of the feature described by Worth (1). The NGR correlates with a point on the terminal reave of the Castor parallel system (sx 68 NE 67) which traverses this area. (5)
