Monument Number 620442

Hob Uid: 620442
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6042073670
Summary : Supposed cairn & cist; poss natural feature
More information : Possible ruined cist and cairn. (1)

Greeves' cairn and cist (1) seems to be a feature at SX 60417366, on a NW slope of rough pasture and littered with moorstones. It is primarily recognisable by a crescentic scarp, at best 0.4m high, which defines the lower side of a slight stance with diameters of about 4.8m N to S by 3.8m.
There is no mound but three earthfast stones are spaced on the perimeter of the stance. On the NW is a part buried recumbent slab of triangular form, 1m by 0.7m. On the NW is an upright slab 1m long, 0.1m thick and 0.2m high, and on the SW a boulder, 0.5m across and 0.3m high. Nearer the centre of the stance are two upright slabs set in an acute V-plan. One is 1.1m long, 0.35m high and up to 0.3m thick; the second is 0.7m long, 0.4m high and 0.2m thick, with a lean towards the first.
There are no signs of disturbance and the whole may be a fortuitous natural arrangement of stones. (2)
