Cairn in Devon

Featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks website the Ger Tor Platform Cairn Circle is described as being "on Ger Tor, north side. Platform circle with ring of kerb stones 4.6m internal diam, enclosing flat-topped cairn 0.2m high. Much disturbed."

Information can also be found on the Pastscape website, see Monument Number 440764, which adds that this is "a heather covered cairn which measures 6.6m by 7.1m in diameter and 0.6m in height, with part of a kerb visible on the southern side. Stones from a small excavation in the top have been thrown to the west side of the cairn."

The Heritage Gateway for Devon & Dartmoor HER, HER number MDV48908, dates the site from the Early Neolithic to the Late Bronze Age (4000 BC to 701 BC). In 1975 9 stones were still visible.
