Notes

Nine Bronze Age round cairns set in two alignments situated on a gentle slope overlooking the valley of the River North Teign. These mounds form a cairn cemetery situated within view of a large number of other broadly contemporary ritual monuments. All of the mounds are circular in shape, vary in diameter between 4 metres and 6.9 metres and stand between 0.4 metres and 1.1 metre high. Four of the cairns have shallow pits cut into their centre indicating robbing or partial early excavation. Scheduled.
