D1. Short double rows composed of less than 10 small and/or medium sized stones

East Pinford on Exmoor

Distribution of short double rows composed of less than 10 small and/or medium sized stones

With the exception of the possible row at Askham Fell cairn all the others are clustered in South West England. Most are on Exmoor and are of the grid type. The two rows on Dartmoor may be the truncated remains of once longer rows. It is therefore probable that rows of this type were originally only found on Exmoor.
