Cairn and cist in Devon

Featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks website, the Fox Tor Newtake, North Cist is described as "the cist is 0.6m deep and 1.2m long, the NW end is 0.4m wide and SE end 0.6m wide; the NW end-slab, said by Burnard (1905) to be wedged in the bottom cannot be seen. The coverstone, resting on the NE side, is 1.6m by 1.3m at its extremities."

Further information can also be found on the Pastscape website, see Monument Number 443328, which expands the description, adding: "The remains of a barrow are visible on the south west side of the cist, probably deposited there when the cist was rifled ..... cairn and cist lie in rough moorland pasture on a peat-covered gentle hillside ..... the cist and its near neighbour (Fox Tor Newtake, South Cist almost 200 metres away) are not intervisible

The Heritage Gateway for Devon & Dartmoor HER number MDV6303, dates this cairn with cist to the Bronze Age (2200 BC to 701 BC). The scheduling information (Historic England List ID 1002592 (Two cairns with cists E of Whiteworks tin mine buildings)) also covers its neighbour, Fox Tor Newtake South Cist.
