This cup marked stone stands in the east wall of Long Plantation approximatly 300 metres north of the B3357.It is one of only three found on Dartmoor.There are 14 cups on the face, which for some reason has the number 81 painted on it as you see it today but with a closer look I think the stone is upside down from when it was painted.Check the way the paint has run on the bottom of the numbers.
