Probable cairn circle. "A small, probably sepulchral, stone circle. It consists of 14 stones arranged in an 'egg' shape. The long axis is 9.9 metres aligned due east by 8.2m transversely. A further 7 stones are in close proximity but may not be associated. There is no trace of a cist or cairn." "It is largely obscured by long tussocky grass and the absence of a discernible cairn or cist makes it an unusual site by Dartmoor standards".
