|Description ||Pig Hill 11. A three stone setting SS 7584 4488
A tiny setting of only three stones, all small, close to the
Lynmouth-Simonsbath road. This name comes from The Field Archaeology of
Exmoor by Hazel Riley and Robert Wilson-North. I think I found all three but
the recumbent one that I photographed may have been a split off part of the
remaining upright. One is a small rounded bluish stone. In the spring of
2003 when I was there the other upright had split into three – probably
frost damage. I propped up the fallen two bits to make the photograph and
reported it to the National Park authorities. A bit lower down the hill is
the much more elaborate setting of Pig Hill 1.
