Featured Row – Higher White Tor

The Higher White Tor stone row on Dartmoor provides further evidence for precise and definable visual links with the landscape in which it was erected. As you walk along the row various landscape features are revealed. Furthermore, both ends are denoted by special limits of visibility to local tors. As the fieldwork continues it is clear that many if not all stone rows were carefully placed within the landscape to acknowledge nearby places and features. Whilst this observation does not yet provide us with answers to many of the questions at least it is now possible to understand the context in which these important monuments were built.
