Spinsters Rock

This is a neolithic dolmen not too far from the A382 and to the north of Chagford. This is a classic burial chamber with three megaliths (standing stones) supporting the capping stone. The burial chamber collapsed in1862 but was re-arrected in the same year. The story of the name goes that three spinsters (not as in a single woman but as in the spinster trade), walked along the road and saw the tomb had fallen. That morning they re-erected the fallen tomb, hence the name.

As it says on the sign to enter the field. The rock itself is in a farmers field, but the gate to the northeast has a public footpath sign allowing access, there is a parking spot by the gate also.
