Here’s the full set of standing stones which impressed me so much as we set out on Tuesday.  The Stone Row on Chagford Common would also have been in amongst the trees of Dartmoor Forest.

I didn’t mention where they all went.

It appears they were decimated by shipbuilders, who sought to keep Brittania ruling the waves.  It all adds up, as this vast tract of land runs virtually all the way across to Plymouth where even today the Royal Navy has a strong presence at Devonport.

  1. I am jealous of your long, beautiful walk. The weather looks fantastic. What a wonderful way to take in the beauty and have lots of time to think.

  2. This is really interesting. Do they know the purpose of the stones? Are the used like Stonehenge? What a wonderful place to walk!

  3. They look like a marked pathway?
