HER Number:MDV22786
Name:CEMETERY in the Parish of Okehampton Hamlets

Summary

Vis=10/9/1979 (os) a circular bank of small stones 4.8m diameter, 1.5m wide and 0.2m high with a 4.0m break in the nw. Situated on high ground in an area which appears to have been cleared at some time and put to pasture. The position seems too exposed for a hut yet there is virtually no stone in the central space. Possibly a robbed cairn. A second cropmark 20.0m to the sw is a depression caused by military activity (os).
