Monument Number 443816

Hob Uid: 443816
Location :
Devon
Teignbridge
North Bovey
Grid Ref : SX6890080800
Summary : Bronze Age triple stone row well marked and wider apart at the north, drawing nearer to the south where they meet a blocking stone of unusual size. The stones have suffered little in their restoration except that a stone in the middle row was turned to form a blocking stone for that row. The loose stones scattered to the west of the north end have been suggested to form a stone circle and additional rows but may be stones excavated from the north end of the stone row.
More information : SX 6896 8086 to SX 6902 8072: Stone Row (NR). (1)

A triple stone row, present length 528 feet but it is impossible
to tell how much was lost at the north end due to excavation of Chaw Gully. The three lines are well marked, wider apart at the north and drawing nearer to the south where they meet a blocking stone of unusual size. The stones have suffered little in their restoration except that a stone in the middle row was turned to form a blocking stone for that row. The loose stones scattered to the west of the north end have been suggested to form a stone circle and additional rows but they are probably the stones excavated from the north end of the stone row now simply lying where they were thrown. If there was a now destroyed barrow at the north end, then it lay at the lower level. (2)
