Featured Site – Butterdon Hill

wp-butterdon-hill-meandering-row2

The Butterdon Hill stone row on Dartmoor is among the longest in Great Britain at nearly 2km. One of the stones has been Christianised and others have been added in more recent years. Most of the stones are fairly small although the occasional orthostat can be found at intervals along its length. The row was adopted as a parish boundary and is depicted on a late 15th century map which shows it separating Harford and Ugborough Moors.
