Merrivale, Devon


  • Located in Merrivale, Devon, South West England, England
  • Dartmoor National Park has a high number of prehistoric attractions. Some of the best attractions are concentrated within a very small area. Drizzle Combe by Burrator Reservoir in the south western section of the Park is arguably the most famous example of this. Shovel Down by Chagford in the northern section of the Park is another. The concentration of prehistoric sites at Merrivale is the most accessible
  • The B3357 cuts across the west moors. The concentration of prehistoric sites to which we refer is south of that road. There's a large, flat expanse of moorland that rises to King's Tor. In that area, you'll find stone rows and burial chambers, a giant standing stone and a stone circle. It's a superb place and, given its accessibility, well worth visiting. We've positioned Merrivale on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location. To visit, start at the car park by the B3357 between the hamlet Merrivale and Rundlestone. Walk south west to explore the prehistoric and historic attractions. Refer to the Ordnance Survey Explorer OL28 'Dartmoor' map for detail
