MMO2392 - Sub Rectangular Mound, Dure Down (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
A large, low, sub-rectangular mound is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs on the south-eastern edge of Dure Down summit, Exmoor. Centred at SS 7581 4119 and measuring approximately 12 metres across, the feature is situated in a prominent position on a hilltop, and as such may well be the remains of a prehistoric funerary monument or cairn. However, it also lies close to a large area of post medieval peat cutting, and may be a peat stack or stand associated with this activity. (1-2)
