Featured Row – Hurston Ridge on Dartmoor

Hurston WPP1020153

The double stone row on Hurston Ridge is well worth visiting. It has extensive views over much of North Devon, but no outlook towards the south. The updated Gazetteer entry examines the nature of landmark reveals visible from this row and briefly explores what these might mean. We can be reasonable confident that this row was built and abandoned before the Middle Bronze Age when a wall was constructed across it. This site also offers the opportunity to learn something about the Bronze Age attitude to heritage protection – which was surprisingly similar to our own.
