"BA cairn and stone row. The scrappy remains of a single stone row now 165m long descend from a badly battered cairn on the south-east slopes of Leeden Tor. The cairn is about 6m across with a large central pit and partial retaining circle. At least 14 stones remain in a line, four only still earthfast and the rest either flat or buried. Stone pits record the loss of some of the stones". Lethbridge p23, diagram p.24. See also: Sea Views at Leeden Tor
