Notes: Butler Row 2. The single row consists of 16 stones and is 56.4m long, although Gerrard suggests it was probably once much longer. The single row leads to a cairn which does not have a retaining circle. The cairn which has been robbed measures 7.4m in diameter and up to 0.75m high. For early description of both rows and the now missing menhir, see: Wilkinson J. Gardner, British Remains on Dartmoor, Journal Brit. Arch. Assoc. xviii. pp.22-53 (1862). Detailed survey of site in Hart Tor Stone Rows & Cairns, Meavy Valley Archaeology. Site Report No.9 - Sandy Gerrard (1999). See also notes for Hart Tor North Stone Row.
