Largest standing stone on Dartmoor - terminal for Drizzlecombe stone row. It is 4.2m in height with a distinctive bulging profile at the top. Worth suggests it was probably dragged here from Higher Hartor Tor about 1km away. Re-erected in 1893. Lethbridge Row B. pp.38-42. Diagram p.38. Worth's Row 19/Row C. Used to be listed as HER 14781 perhaps now deleted as an HER duplicate record.
