Hob Uid: 918929
Location :
Devon

Grid Ref : SX5468078170
Summary : Possible Bronze Age cairn. A turf covered stony mound set on a south facing slope of rough grassland. Just N of tin streamworking which run along the Colly Brook. It may have been built on a platform around the southern side. Several stones protrude around the perimeter but there would appear to be no kerb as such. Apart from the slight robbing in the south the mound appears to be intact.
More information : SX 5467 7817: A turf covered stony mound set on a gentle south facing slope of rough grassland. It measures 6.4 metres diameter and 0.6 metres high and may have been built on a platform around the southern side. Several stones protrude around the perimeter but there would appear to be no kerb as such. Apart from the slight robbing in the south the mound appears to be intact.

Its close proximity to a tinning area suggests it may be associated with it but its good position, symmetry and proximity to the possible hut circle (15 metres to the north east) may indicate a prehistoric origin. (1)
