Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 443984

Hob Uid: 443984
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6199908400
Summary : Two cairns - alleged.
More information : Approximately SX 625845 (1) Two ruined cairns in Teign
Head Newtake were examined by Burnard. One contained a small pit
with wood charcoal. (1-2)

The two cairns excavated by Burnard in Teinhead Newtake were not identified on the ground.

The OS cards SX 68 SW 24 and 41 apparently refer to the same cairns, although the descriptions are vague.

Grinsell did not locate the sites, consequently his grid reference applies to the centre of the newtake, which covers approximately 120 hectares. (3)
