White Moor Stone
White Moor Stone submitted by TheCaptain : White Moor Stone, Dartmoor, Devon SX634895 150 metres southeast of White Moor Stone Circle is the Whit Moor Stone, which is more than 5 feet in height, and has been adapted as a parish boundary stone, with its parish marks cut into it. This stone is almost certainly much older than just a boundary stone, and is likely to be associated in some way with the circle. (Vote or comment on this photo)
150 metres southeast of the White Moor Stone circle stands the White Moor Stone, which is more than 5 feet in height, and has been adapted as a parish boundary stone, with its parish marks cut into it.

This stone is almost certainly much older than just a boundary stone, and is likely to be associated in some way with the circle.

Between this stone and the circle are the remains of a cairn.

Update August 2019: This standing stone is featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks (PDW) website - see their entries for the White Moor Stone Standing Stone and the Little Hound Tor Stone Circle.

The stone is also recorded as recorded as Pastscape Monument No. 443700, as MDV4391 (White Moor Stone) on the Devon and Dartmoor HER, and scheduled as Historic England List Entry No. 1010785 (White Moor Stone).
