Monument Number 620271

Hob Uid: 620271
Location :
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6300072310
Summary : ?Ring cairn
More information : SX 63007231. A probably ring cairn situated on a slight NW slope in a shallow saddle at 353m OD. At least eight tin pits occur immediately to the E and S, and modern small stone clearance heaps are visible everywhere (SX 67 SW 232 & 235).
The circular turf-covered stony bank is 12.2m in overall diameter, 2.0m wide and on average 0.4m high; a few stones protrude through the turf but there is no obvious trace of a kerb, slabs or boulders. Two or three modern clearance heaps lie on the bank and a gap on the N side with an adjacent corresponding pile of spoil is probably a recent mutilation. The gently sloping interior is undulating but featureless. Its form, general dimensions and situation are all similar to the probable ring cairn, now heavily mutilated, 74.0m to the SE (SX 67 SW 220). (1)
