|Description ||On the southern slopes of Louden Hill, where the new trackway descends the hill are the remains of an ancient settlement, remains of which can be seen all around in this picture.
Just to the south of the track is a fairly impressive stone standing upright. Closer inspection shows there to be others nearby. Far too big for a hut doorpost, is it a menhir ? or is it a more modern marker for the ancient trackway across the moor here ?|
|Looking again, do we have a fallen row of several stones here ? or just some sort of boundary markers ? Roughtor looms on the horizon|
|And if they were standing they might align with Roughtor's summit, so it seems quite possible that it could be a row.|
|reading a copy of the Bodmin Moor Archaeological survey, and in there it states that these stones are two menhirs, within a platform cairn.|
