Monument Number 859394

Hob Uid: 859394
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Exmoor
Grid Ref : SS8301044160
Summary : A possible stone setting comprising two earthfast stones.
More information : SS 83014417 Stones.
Two small upright earthfast sandstone slabs situated at about 405m OD on a gentle SW facing slope some 200m due W of Black Barrow (SS 84 SW 12). The site under heather cover has clear views over the Hoscombe valley to the SW and is within sight of stone settings SS 84 SW 27, 47 and 48. Though no evidence of other stones or hollows was evident this could well be the remnant of a stone setting as the two slabs are typical of those found in many settings (1).

A table with further information on the stones is held in the archive.
