Scheduled Rows

Cosdon

Cosdon triple row on Dartmoor

Many stone rows are Scheduled Ancient Monuments which means that they are protected by law and it is an offence to damage them. Some such as Gray Hill are only partly protected and a significant proportion are not scheduled. Some of these may be protected indirectly as a result of some other form of designation.  A new article looking at the current scheduled status of stone rows is now available here. Separate Schedules cover England, Scotland and Wales and each are administered by different organisations.  In England the Schedule these days is the responsibility of Historic England, whilst in Scotland the task falls to Historic Environment Scotland and in Wales it is maintained by Cadw.
