|Description ||Leeden Tor - Cairn at upper end SX 5653 7147.
A scrappy row 107 m long but with only 4 stones still upright. Cairn 6m dia
with large central pit. Runs NW - SE with cairn at uphill N W end. The cairn
Has a reeve cutting across it and the row has another reeve cutting across.
Reeve - local word for a prehitoric field boundary maade from roughly
assembled granite blocks now sometimes only traces exist as here. Reeve
building on Dartmoor circa 1400 BC. Seems likely that the rows predate the
reeves. Tricky to find a GPS helps. I show 2 pics of the row and one of a
reeve with a fallen slab from the row in the foreground. |
