White Moor Cairn
White Moor Cairn submitted by TheCaptain : White Moor Cairn, Dartmoor, Devon SX634895 Situated between the stone circle and the Whit Moor Stone are the remains of a cairn. This is seen here as the darker area in the heather. (Vote or comment on this photo)
Much robbed cairn, 8.5 metres in diameter, which lies approximately mid way between the White Moor Stone circle, and the outlying White Moor Stone to the southeast.

The cairn is very much overgrow, and is possibly associated in some way with the circle.

Update December 2019: This cairn is featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks (PDW) website - see their entry for the White Moor Cairn. The cairn is also recorded as Pastscape Monument No. 443699, as MDV4372 (Round cairn north-west of White Moor stone), and scheduled as Historic England List Entry No. 1010787 (Round cairn 80m SSW of White Moor stone circle).
