Notes: Cairn circle at head of stone row. "The circle 6.5m. in diameter comprises eight orthostats from 0.7m. to 1.5m. high. In some cases the 'trig' stones are visible." "The alleged cairn at the head of the row comprises a ring of eight stones a maximum of 1.2m high with no evidence of a cist and very little to suggest the former presence of a cairn. It would seem more likely to represent the remains of a small stone circle albeit only 6.0 to 6.5m in diameter." See also, Legendary Dartmoor: The Pulpit. Lethbridge p.57-8, diagram p.58.
