Cairn in Devon

This cairn circle is featured on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks (PDW) website - see their page for the Stonetor Hill Cairn Circle, which tells us this site was listed as a possible stone circle by Turner (his reference: G12)

The site is also recorded as Pastscape Monument No. 889193, which tells us there are two upright slabs, both standing to a height of 1.2m, and which act as parish boundary markers. There is also an entry in the Devon and Dartmoor HER: MDV54535 (Boundary Stone(s) in the Parish of Dartmoor Forest, Gidleigh).

Stonetor Hill Cairn Circle submitted by Bladup : Stonetor Hill Cairn Circle, I don't know how anyone came up with a Circle suggestion for this place (Cairn Circle or Stone Circle) because the two stones are clearly in a row (Vote or comment on this photo)
