Vis=5/5/1950 (os) this is considered to be a doubtful kistvaen as it does not resemble any previous kistvaen on dartmoor. It is devoid of the normal characteristic sidestones, endstones and coverstone. And being situated at the top of a cairn does not conform with the normal situation of a kistvaen at or about ground level.
