Monument Number 445101

Hob Uid: 445101
Location :
Devon
Teignbridge
Manaton
Grid Ref : SX7410078760
Summary : A ring cairn surviving as a mound 6.5 metres in diameter and 0.15 metres high. It is defined, except on the west side, by a ring of at least 19 close set granite stones. In the centre of the cairn is a north to south orientated cist, with both end stones and the western side stone remaining visible.
More information : Kistvaen [O.E.] [SX 7409 7876] (1)

Rowe records it in his "Perambulation of Dartmoor" "A furlong S. of Hound Tor; a circular enclosure, 26 yds. circumference, with a kistvaen of 4 stones not less than 6 ft. 1 in. long, lft thick and 15 ins. wide. The only upright stone is that at the S. end" (a).

Handsford Worth planned and recorded the site in 1933 when 19 stones of the retaining circle survived. The circle had a diameter of 21 ft. 8 ins., its western half being completely robbed. Only one end and one side of the kist remained. (b)

(Plan photograph see AO/60/12/7). (2)

Worth's description is correct except that two end stones of the cist survive, the northern one prostrate. The retaining circle survives for aproximately two thirds of its circumference.

See ground photograph AO/53/68/5.

A 25" survey has been made. (3)
