HER Number:MDV58104
Name:Cairn 170m south-east of Black Tor, Walkhampton

Summary

Cairn lying immediately west of the scarp formed by alluvial streamworking in the valley bottom. Survives as 4m diameter mound standing up to 0.8m high. No sign of robbing. Lies only 45m from the surviving end of double stone row at Hart Tor (see SX57SE/52) and should perhaps be considered as belonging to that group of monuments.
