Dartmoor National Park Authority, 2017, Site visits to Throwleigh Common (Personal Comment). SDV360253.

Site visited 4/07/2017. Plotted using GPS (SX65639 90680). Area was densely vegetated and highly overgrown with bracken. Difficult to gain access to centre of circle due to the vegetation so GPS reading taken from edge of circle. Hard to find the circle due to excess vegetation and grass growing over rocks.
