Monument Number 890232

Hob Uid: 890232
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Exmoor
Grid Ref : SS7811042750
Summary : A disturbed prehistoric cairn measuring 4m by 2.5m by 0.25m high.
More information : A disturbed cairn of small stones forming two rims on the NE and S sides of stone "L" of a prehistoric stone setting SS 74 SE 49. It is not clear whether stone and cairn were once a single monument, or whether insertion of the stone caused damage to the cairn. The cairn material is spread 4m N to S and 2.5m E to W and survives 0.25m high. Association of stone settings and small cairns has been observed elsewhere in the area (see SS 74 SE 51 setting and SS 74 SE 92 cairn), (see SS 74 SE 5 setting and SS 74 SE 95 cairn).

Another small cairn lies only 15m to the N, (SS 74 SE 93). (1)

As previously described. Surveyed at 1:2500 scale. (2)
