LONGSTONE...

THE SHOVEL DOWN LONGSTONE
On Shovel Down near Chagford Common on Dartmoor can be found the Longstone. 
This standing stone is about three metres in height and it is thought to be over 3,500 years old. 
In the year 1240 it was recorded as a boundary stone mentioned in the Perambulation of the Forest Bounds. 
Shovel Down is a good place to visit for those who are interested in these structures....As well as the Longstone, a Stone Circle, Bronze age Stone Rows and a Cairn can all be found here as well.
