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

Site visited 4/07/2017 and plotted using GPS (SX65605 91031). Area was densely vegetated and highly overgrown with bracken. Hard to find the circle due to excess vegetation and grass growing over rocks. Difficult to gain access to centre of circle due to the vegetation so GPS reading taken from edge of circle.
