Eric Hemery describes these three stones which are not, as indicated in Dartmoor 365, a stone row; “The foot of Lanson Brook is drowned by the reservoir, above which, on a steep slope above the left bank, is Joan Ford’s Newtake. In the centre of the enclosure are three standing stones which, by Dartmoor custom, might be dubbed ‘Joan Ford’s Men’. They are not of historic import, having in all probability once supported the roof of a linhay used in lambing time.”
