Lakehead Hill Summit stone row on Dartmoor points at Longaford Tor.

At least 22 rows are aligned upon a landmark. Often it is a distinctive hill such as at Afon Hyddgen which is aligned upon Disgwlfa Fawr or at Lakehead Hill summit which is aligned on Longaford Tor and Haytor Rocks. Sometimes they are aligned on a cairn or cist such as at Ballochroy and Glenamachrie. At Bancbryn and Shaugh Moor the rows are aligned on a promontory. Relatively few stone rows are aligned on prominent features and given their linear nature this may seem surprising. Generally the rows do not appear to point at specific places, although there are examples where this is exactly what they seem to do. This emphasises the varied character of the rows.
