Full Description

A recumbent stone was noted during a non intrustive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on Deer Park, undertaken by South West Archaeology as part of the Exmoor Mires Project. This stone was found to be loose, so probably ex situ. It is located in proximity to next to the standing stone MSO12241. [1] The Historic Environment Officer for the Exmoor Mires Project undertook a non-intrustive walkover survey of the proposed mire restoration area on Deer Park, which included this site. Noted was a recumbent surface stone c. 3 metres east of the standing stone MSO12241. This is potentially a recumbent standing stone. [2]
