Grid Ref : SX6532081090

This cairn lie 440 feet WSW of a Kistvaen marked on the sheet 99 NE (Devon), (SX 68 SE 24), and is 15 feet in diameter. There is evidence of disturbance from a further excavation.
The trenches were cut through the cairn, that from NE-SW disclosing a thick layer of wood-charcoal resting on the ancient surface, and a circular, slightly bell-shaped hole, 18"inches in diameter by 15 inches deep. This cavity was filled with wood-charcoal, a few indeterminate bone fragments and a flint point. (2)
