Collard Tor E
Collard Tor E submitted by SandyG : The eastern row without labels. View from north west. (Vote or comment on this photo)
A pair of single stone rows each leading downslope (south) from a separate cairn. The rows lead through an area of clutter making them difficult to define in places.

The cairn at the top of the eastern row has a very fine kerb. The eastern row is 83.5m long and includes 27 stones, most of which are now fallen. The western row is 65m long and includes 29 stones of which 11 are still standing.

(Butler, J., 1994, "Dartmoor Atlas of Antiquities Vol. 3, 106-109). This site stands on the edge of extensive china clay quarries, within an historic field system and close to a settlement. Its survival is therefore fortunate indeed.

Update August 2019: This stone row is featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks (PDW) website - see their entry for the Collard Tor E. Stone Row.

The row is also recorded as part of Pastscape Monument No. 439259 (two stone rows each headed by a cairn) and scheduled as part of Historic England List ID 1003829 (Two cairns with stone rows E of Collard Tor on Wotter Common).

The Devon and Dartmoor HER also includes an entry for this 'poorly preserved' stone row (one of two): MDV14792 (Stone Row near Collard Tor).

Also see the Stone Rows of Great Britain's entry for Collard Tor, East, which includes a description, photographs of this row, and a plan of both rows (east and west) with their associated cairns and pillars.

The cairn at the top of the eastern row has a very fine kerb. The eastern row is 83.5m long and includes 27 stones, most of which are now recumbent. The western row is 65m long and includes 29 stones of which 11 are still standing. (Butler, J., 1994, "Dartmoor Atlas of Antiquities Vol. 3, 106-109).
