"A slight cairn with retaining circle, enclosing a cist aligned SSE-NNW, near the junction of Shavercombe Lake and River Plym." The author of this website was unable to locate this cist in the vicinity of SX 59095 65774 on 13/08/17. Either the grid reference is inaccurate or the site is difficult to find, possibly obscured by vegetation. The accounts from Turner and in the HER seem to indicate that the site does actually exist.
