Cairn Class: Maybe
Notes: Mentioned by Breton 1912. NMR refers to clearance cairns SE of Cox Tor and cites Grinsell who is referring back to Baring-Gould. "Cox tor. On southern slope of tor is a cluster of cairns, sepulchral. Five definitely cairns and a number of other doubtful mounds. Two examined. Originally circular, composed of earth and stones. Nothing found.(baring-gould)." This very much sounds like a description of cairns 8 & 9 which are to the SE of cox tor and were excavated by the Dartmoor Exploration Committee. This grid reference is comparatively to the west and is probably wrong. This record is being marked as a duplicate for this reason, see Cox Tor 8 and Cox Tor 9.
