Notes

A Bronze Age round cairn on Chagford Common, 320 metres west of West Vitifer Mine. The cairn was partially excavated in 1897 by the Barrow Committee of the Devonshire Association. This working revealed a ring of slabs surrounding a cist which had not been previously examined. In the cist there was a complete Bronze Age beaker together with charcoal but no trace of a burial. Scheduled.
