MONUMENT NO. 438580

DESCRIPTION + /

A round cairn, located 570 metres east-south-east of Down Tor. The cairn mound measures 14m in diameter and stands up to 0.7m high. A T-shaped trench, cutting into the centre of the mound suggests a partial early excavation. Three prospecting pits lie immediately against the mound. Each comprises a sub-rectangular pit measuring 2.8 metres long, 1.4 metres wide and 0.6 metres deep, with an associated bank standing up to 0.5 metres high. These were probably excavated by tinners searching for ore. Scheduled.
