Guidance for walkers: The monuments featured in this database are archaeological treasures and need to be protected and preserved - please do not disturb any sites. Please check access and firing times before visiting sites, not all sites listed are on open access land. Firing ranges and boundaries of open access areas are marked on the OL28 OS Dartmoor Explorer map. Please stick to the country code and consider giving support to the numerous agencies that help to keep Dartmoor a fabulous natural and historic environment!

About the database: In all listings clicking on the photo will open a page for the site with a larger photo. The listings are drawn mainly from scientific journals and will not include the most recently discovered minor sites. There is comprehensive coverage of stone circles, stone rows and menhirs. Listings for cists and cairn circles should cover most of the better known sites. There are only partial entries for round cairns, settlements, pounds and none for reaves. For listings of specific types of monument click on Resources in the menu above. Corrections, or any feedback or suggestions are very welcome, email: info@dartmoorwalks.org.uk.

NOTE: Clicking on the icons for each monument in the map will give the name of the monument. Where icons overlap they are replaced with an icon with a number - zooming in may separate them out.

Vis=28/7/1977 (os) there is a gap in the rim on the southeast, probably for carts taking away the stone".

A third row, irregularly spaced and not showing much above ground,
meets the double section of the rows at an angle of about 10o on the north-west side, extending westward to about level with the terminal. Visual projection east-ward along the third row appears to be in line with the orthostat". Lethbridge 78 Rows 4/5 diagram p.77. Formerly listed as Butter Brook 2.

Notes: Grinsell SOUTH BRENT 1. "An earthen long barrow with a ruined stone chamber at the south east end. Early excavation and mutilation has resulted in two distinct mounds, the larger one at the south east end separated from the smaller by a path or trackway. The smaller mound appears to mark the limit of the barrow on the northwest; beyond this it merges into the natural hill-side. There are no side ditches but these may be obscured by soil washed down from the hill. The length is 42.0 m; the maximum width is 18.0m and the maximum height of 2.4m."

The northern part has lost no stones and the change from double to single is abrupt and complete.

Notes: The fallen menhir on Piles Hill: "The 'Longstone' is a block of very coarse-grained pinkish granite. It is now 2.5m long and of rough rectangular section tapering from a base formerly about 0.4m. by 0.7m. which has been squared and snapped by drilling. The stone lies in a northwest to southeast direction. To its northeast side there is a boundary stone erected in 1803 and shaped by drilling. It is of identical stone and appears to have been fashioned from the 'Longstone' which would therefore have originally been some 4.5m long." Lethbridge p.77

A few take the form of slabs or boulders but the majority are of post-type up to 0.6m. square in section, with an angled top created by a single 'chamfer'.

Butler Vol 5: p.155
Notes: A rectangular enclosure not far from Corringdon Ball chambered tomb measuring 112m by 34m that can be seen clearly on aerial and satellite photos of the area. The walls are up to 1.5m thick and 0.3m high, and have been entirely destroyed on the east and north-west sides. There is no obvious entrance and the interior is empty of any structure. According to Butler the east to west orientation of the long axis could suggest a mortuary enclosure of mid-neolithic date (Vol 5 pp.155-6).
