Gidleigh Common Reported Stone Row

Stone row recorded from a possible 1920s identification. Unlikely and has not been confirmed at this location.

Important Acknowledgement: Alan Endacott, who is carrying out PhD research into ‘the Prehistoric Ritual Landscapes of North-eastern Dartmoor’. You can follow his dartmoor.archaeology1 page on Facebook. Alan has spent much of his life studying the possible stone circles and rows stretching from Okehampton to Chagford and across the high moor in between, extending south towards Whitehorse/Hangingstone Hills. This is crucial research and, once eventually published, could give us a whole new insight into the ceremonial landscape.

B.M. 1192.2, SEF, on TK near Wallabrook Bridge

Reference: Side by Side

Notes: I think this might have been found previously by my father, but I decided it was unlikely. However today, with a bright, low sun casting strong shadows it stood out from a distance! (RJN).

Very eroded. (RJN).

Last time I was here (with Max Piper) I found the rock but couldn’t discern any B.M. there! This one really needs the right light.. So much so I’ve circled the B.M. for the featured image!! (RJN).

Scorhill House (hut circle) (405 m)

I visited this one whilst failing to find the nearby B.M. I don’t often add Prehistoric Huts to the site as there are soooo many on Dartmoor! However, this is a nice, isolated one and on the map. Although the map shows it to be 24 metres further down the track to the south west.. but I couldn’t see anything at that point and this is the only hut nearby.
