Down Tor, SE of, Tor cairn

Acknowledgement: A very good description of this cairn is provided on the Prehistoric Dartmoor Walks website; “6m by 5.8m by 0.4m high. Two parallel lines of edge set stones form the n side of the cairn. They lead from a large granite outcrop situated to the w. The inner line of stones survives as a 4.3m long by 0.8m wide line of at least 10 stones. The outer is 4m long and also includes at least 10 stones. The s side is denoted by 9 stones set on top of a large granite boulder. The e side includes a jumble of large stones, with others lying on the slope directly below. The w side is formed by the tor. The area enclosed by these features measures 6m wide at the w end, 2.8m wide at the e end and up to 4.3m long e-w.

Newleycombe Potato Cave

You would have a job to find this potato cave without an NGR. It is completely surrounded by dense gorse. It was noted by Paul Rendell in the 1980s, but since then it has largely silted up and you cannot get inside.
