Shaugh Moor South Cairn Circle
Shaugh Moor South Cairn Circle submitted by thecaptain : This stone row is about 180 metres long, running uphill to a cairn with remnants of a surrounding circle. (Vote or comment on this photo)
Cairn in Devon

Information about this cairn comes from the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks website - see their entry for the Shaugh Moor (S) Cairn Circle, which tells us this cairn circle is located at the southern end of the Shaugh Moor Stone row. It is described as an egg-shaped ring of stone uprights, with only four clearly identifiable stones left in the ring, which suggests a diameter of 15.0m.

The cairn is recorded as part of Pastscape Monument No. 439236, as MDV49564 (Retaining circle at south-western end of Shaugh Moor stone row), and scheduled as part of Historic England List ID 1002518 (Stone row NW of Saddlesborough).

For more information about the stone row and its associated cairns, see the Stone Rows of Great Britain's entry for the Shaugh Moor, which includes a plan of the monuments, photographs and links to online resources for more information.
