This double stone row @ SX 6570 5717 has a cairn at the upper end
which is on the skyline when viewed from the lower end of the row. The ruined cairn is 8m
diameter & has a single slab at the centre in a hollow. Perhaps the remains of a burial kist. The row is 48m long with an azimuth of 45 degrees.
Strangely this row is aligned diagonally across the slope of the hill. It does not follow the natural contour of the downhill slope. The horizon height of the
cairn from the bottom of the row is 3 degrees giving a declination for the cairn of 29 - The most northerly moorise position of the 18.6 year cycle. It is not alone on Dartmoor for this. |
