Monument Number 444060

Hob Uid: 444060
Location :
Devon
West Devon
South Tawton
Grid Ref : SX6503091410
Summary : Bronze age round cairn situated on the lower east facing slope of Cosdon Hill. The cairn measures 8 metres long by 7 metres wide and stands up to 0.7 metres high. Two trenches cut into the mound are the result of robbing or partial early excavation. Scheduled.
More information : (SX 64859150) A fine circle in ruins: has a central stone, several nearly buried; about twenty stones remain. (1)

No trace of a stone circle could be found but the probable remains of a low barrow with retaining circle at SX 6503 9141 may apply. (2)

A mutilated cairn 9.5m in diameter and 0.6m high with traces of
a retaining circle is that published as 'Mound' at SX 65039142 on
OS 25" 1953. Almost certainly the feature referred by Breton.
Published 1/2500 survey revised. (3)
