Looking after Dartmoor's history, people and environment
Spinster's Rock is the best known of all the prehistoric chambered tombs on Dartmoor. Chambered tombs, or cromlechs, are neolithic burial monuments. They consist of a stone-built chamber with a mound covering of earth or stone. Burnard's photograph, dated 20th June 1891, shows the monument after the 1860's re-erection and restoration.
