Location :
Devon
Teignbridge
North Bovey
Grid Ref : SX6990081310
Summary : Tor cairn north of Hookney Tor and resembling a barrow in shape. Enough of the topsoil has been removed to show that the mound is a natural outcrop feature covered with turf and heather, enclosed on three sides by a broken turf and stone bank. A footpath approaching the west side has probably effaced the remainder of the circuit. Scheduled.
