Fernworthy Cairn 4
Fernworthy Cairn 4 submitted by TheCaptain : The first monument to look for, which you might otherwise miss is cairn 4, found right at the corner of forest, trackway and open area. Probably about 10 metres in diameter, the centre of the cairn is green and rocky, and there are several kerbstones making up a circular surround. (Vote or comment on this photo)
The first monument to look for, which you might otherwise miss is cairn 4, found right at the corner of forest, trackway and open area.

Probably about 10 metres in diameter, the centre of the cairn is green and rocky, and there are several kerbstones making up a circular surround.

Update October 2019: This barrow is featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks (PDW) website - see their entry for the Fernworthy Barrow C Cairn, which tells us this forms part of the "ceremonial complex at Froggymeade. It is sited at the southern end of the eastern stone row to the south of the Fernworthy stone circle. It was excavated in 1898, but had previously been disturbed".

This site is also recorded as part of Pastscape Monument No. 443898, which includes the following sites: "(a) Bronze Age cairn, barrow containing a cist, and double stone row between the two". The Devon and Dartmoor HER also includes an entry for this cairn; see MDV14887 (Cairn at southern end of stone row at Fernworthy).

The cairn is also scheduled as part of Historic England List ID 1017984 (A stone circle, known as Fernworthy Circle, three stone alignments and five cairns 425m and 525m north west of Sandeman Bridge).
