Monument Number 443805

Hob Uid: 443805
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6702908192
Summary : Round Bronze Age cairn situated on Hurston Ridge between Assycombe Hill and Water Hill and 1 kilometre north west of Warren House Inn. A recumbent triangular stone lies on its north eastern edge.
More information : (SX 67038192) Cairn (NR) (site of) (NAT).

SX 67008184. A stone cairn in open moorland on the gentle north-east facing flank of Hurston Ridge 570m north-north-west of the summit of Water Hill. This feature measures 9.5m north to south by 11.7m and remains a maximum of 0.65m high on the north-west. Some stone is apparent and a large fallen slab lies on the south-eastern margin. An amorphous hollow 0.15m deep lies slightly south of centre.
The location of this feature varies considerably from the NGR given by authority 1 suggesting that this may be a separate monument. However, the immediate area is poorly served with local OS control and it seems more likely that its position was originally erroneously surveyed. Depicted and described by Butler (1991, 31-32, Map 35 137). (1-2)

A Bronze Age round cairn situated on Hurston Ridge between Assycombe Hill and Water Hill. The cairn is flat topped and measures 9 metres in diameter by 0.6 metres in height. A recumbant triangular stone lies on its north eastern side. The cairn was excavated in 1900 by the Dartmoor Exploration Committee who found an upturned urn covering a charcoal filled pit.(3)
