Monument Number 443776

Hob Uid: 443776
Location :
West Devon
Grid Ref : SX6298088000
Summary : The remains of a Bronze Age cairn with cist. A reave lies in the vicinity.
More information : Approximately SX 62988800 (a) Grinsell, who could
not locate this cairn in July 1976, identifies it as that
examined by Baring-Gould about 1900, "about a mile beyond
Watern Tor, in a direct line with Hound Tor". (But see
SX 68 NW 9 where it is also recorded in association with an
apparently undisturbed cairn.) (1)

Baring-Gould describes a ruined cairn containing the remains
of a cist measuring about 7ft long by 4ft 4ins wide,
aligned NW-SE. One side and one end stone remained. The cist
enclosed an 18ins deep circular pit containing a little wood
charcoal. Two large stones lying close to the cairn were
probably used as covers. A short reave extends from the cairn. (2)

Duplicate of 443705. (3)
