T12. Long triple rows composed of 10 or more different sized stones

Cosdon triple stone row on Dartmoor

Long triple rows composed of different sized stones are found only on Dartmoor. This implies a regional response by the row builders, which might have been influenced by stone availability or by a need to incorporate at least some large stones in their design.  Perhaps sign-posting particularly special spots along the way.
