Featured row – Black Tor (Stanlake)

Black Tor WPP1070971

The stone row at Stanlake near the Burrator Reservoir on Dartmoor is unusual in that it is partly buried beneath a later historic boundary. It is a double row although only one side is currently visible. The clue to its original form is provided by a large blocking stone at the north eastern end. The Gazetteer entry for this row has recently been enhanced by the addition of some fresh photographs and a new article examining its special visual relationship with the sea has been published. The Sea View article also looks at the character of various landmark reveals, illustrating how various prominent features at the edge of visibility appear and disappear as you walk along the row.
