Cairn or hut circle? Probable cairn - although only hut circles listed in this precise location on HER although there are also numerous cairns in the general area. The photo of this site matches well the diagram given by Butler on p.141 of Vol 3 of the Dartmoor Atlas of Antiquities with the four large slabs radiating out from the centre.
