Walla Barrow (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

This small cairn (no it is not a barrow!) lies near to a medieval tin stream works, in a moorland valley. It was excavated by Croft-Andrew in the mid 20C, but nothing of interest was found. This is probably due to the fact that after the stunning find of a gold cup in Rillaton Barrow (this is actually a cairn also!), every mound of earth or stone in the district was turned over in search of more treasure.

Langstone Down Menhir (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

This menhir (now fallen) gave the downs upon which it is to be found their name. It is located in idillic isolation on a plateau between the peaks of Sharp and Killmar Tors.

Bearah Common (Long Cairn) — Fieldnotes

This enigmatic site is located just off the track to Bearah Tor Quarry, the cairn itself is quite ruinous, but the chamber & its capstone are in-situ.

Craddock Moor Embanked Avenue (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

The site is difficult to find, especially between mid-June and November due to the abundance of braken in the area, it is easiest found from Craddock Moor Stone Circle on a bearing that divides the Craddock Moor Stone Row in half.
