Cist in Devon

This site is featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks website which tells us that the Gutter Tor South Cist is "situated on the flat top of Gutter Tor at about 345m OD just on the north side of the crest of the hill. Two end stones and a side stone remain upright".

Further information can also be found on the Pastscape website, see Monument Number 438659, which tells us that "the slab flush with the ground on the east side may be a recumbent side stone. The height above ground is 0.4m. There is no trace of a cairn."

The Heritage Gateway for Devon & Dartmoor HER, HER number MDV3991, dates the site from the Early Neolithic to the Late Bronze Age (4000 BC to 701 BC).
See also the Portal's Gutter Tor North Cairn entry.

The cist is also scheduled as Historic England List Entry No. 1012472 (Cist south-west of Gutter Tor).
