King's Barrow, Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor National Park

King's Barrow, Moretonhampstead, Dartmoor National Park

The barrow on top of King Tor is one of a number of these highly visible burial chambers on Hookney Down and Hamel Down. You can see them from miles around which was, clearly, the intention.

See our King Tor listing for directions.

Note that the barrow is close to English Heritage's Grimspound. The rare triple stone row Challacombe Stone Row is near. The impressive Hurston Ridge/Chagford Common Stone Row is a little further away.

Broad Barrow, Single Barrow, Two Barrows and Hameldown Beacon are all on the whale's back of Hamel Down.
