Monument Number 621658

Hob Uid: 621658
Location :
West Devon
Dartmoor Forest
Grid Ref : SX6406082820
Summary : The remains of a cairn situated within an area of ritual monuments on Great Stannon Newtake. The cairn measures 9 metres in diameter, stands up to 0.6 metres high and is surrounded by a clearly defined kerb. Scheduled.
More information : SX 64078284. This disturbed cairn is prominently situated on a slight rise near the foot of a S-facing hillslope at 461m OD. It measures 8m E-W by approximately 11.5m and has an average height of 0.3m. A kerb is visible on the W as a few low earthfast boulders and on the S as six contiguous moorland slabs which have fallen outwards; the largest slab measures 1.2m wide and 0.5m long. Numerous small boulders protrude through the turf on the flattish heather-covered top which has a slight central depression.
It probably was an 8m diameter kerbed cairn which has been spread by the addition of ?excavation spoil to the N side. The observed pattern of concentric circles of stones noted within the mound (1) could not be identified. (1-2)
