Notes: Dave Parks on his brilliant ‘Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks‘ website has written an in-depth article that explores the Row and its surrounding features.
The northernmost stones of the magnificent Stalldown Row are so high that they resemble menhirs, each a fine specimen in its own right. Collectively the stone row is also known as the Cornwood Maidens, standing above the surrounding ground when viewed from the north. They really are a spectacle.
Richard Hansford Worth (1953) observes that “they have the appearance of a line of mounted men advancing toward the observer. Size and position both contribute to their effect.“
