Full description

Hemery, E., 1983, High Dartmoor, 796-797 (Monograph). SDV249702.

When referring to Sandy Road, Hemery records that in crossing the south foot of Kennon between Rewelake Pit and Sandy Ford, it passes below the ruins of a possible stone circle. Spencer (Maps) has marked this as 'Kennon Circle six stones standing' and, running north-eastward from it, 'stone row one hundred yards'. The circle is decribed as 'completely unphotogenic', appears to have had a diameter of approximately sixty feet and now has only one standing stone. Not able to confirm the stone row.
