Cairn in Devon

Just over 420 metres to the south west of Legis Tor Cairns, at grid reference SX57496554, another cairn featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks website is the Legis Tor East Platform Cairn Circle and Cist which has one side and one end stone in position, with some stones remaining in the retaining circle.

The cairn is also recorded as Pastscape Monument No. 438689, as MDV3424 (Cairn at Legistor Warren) on the Devon and Dartmoor HER, and scheduled as part of Historic England List Entry No. 1019876 (Prehistoric settlement, three round cairns and a post-medieval rabbit warren at Legis Tor).
