Merrivale Stone Rows, Merrivale, Dartmoor National Park

Two long stone rows dominate the Merrivale prehistoric complex. They are separated by a leat. The stone row closest to the B3357 and to the north of the leat is about 180 metres or 590 feet long. The stone row to the south of the leat is about 260 metres or 850 feet long. A burial cist and circle of stones sits in the middle of the longer stone row.

A third, small stone row runs off the 260 metres row. This third stone row is located towards the western end of the 260 metres row.

Last, the remains of another stone row can just about be made out to the south of the standing stone at Merrivale complex.

Dartmoor is home to a large number of the UK's stone rows. The two long stone rows at Merrivale are as impressive as any other rows in the National Park.
