Table of Dartmoor Cists

The table below lists over 150 cists included in the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks database. For convenience of comparison with Dixon's list of cists the table is ordered by the "Dixon" number as extended by Grinsell. The numbers from 130 onwards merely represent the order that additional entries have been added. For a more detailed discussion and a listing including photos and notes see the main page on cists. Click on the table headers to get listings ordered by Site Name, Short Name or OS number. Clicking on the Site Name will open a site page with a large photo where one is available. Clicking on OS links will list nearby sites and clicking on the NMR or HER number will open the relevant record in a new window.
