Spinster's Rock, Chagford, Dartmoor National Park

'Spinsters Rock [sic]. A Neolithic burial chamber erected around 3500-2500 B.C. This chamber probably contained many burials and would originally have been covered by a long earthen mound. The stones fell down in 1862 and were re-erected in the same year. Traditionally this monument was erected by three spinsters one morning before breakfast.'
