Three upright stones in line on east side of Bellever Tor could possibly represent remains of a stone row. Very problematic. Details on worksheet.


RCHME, 1993, Untitled Source (Site Visit). SDV215686.

It is not possible to determine the exact position of the feature described from the above NGR. However, the stony E flank of Bellever Tor possesses several short alignments, all of which appear to be products of the underlying clitter.


ADAS, 1995, Untitled Source (Site Visit). SDV320425.

No sign of this feature- probably obscured by shrubbery.

E of Bellever Tor. Seems doubtful, or at least unconfirmed.
