Identification

Category: Possible. Excavation revealed that this feature consisted of a linear cut loosely filled with granite cobbles and boulders. The excavators claim that it is most likely a boundary feature.  No boundary features of this type are known on Dartmoor and given the position of the feature next to a stone circle and row it is more likely that this feature is a stone row, although if so probably of an unusual form.
