Google Map of King Arthurs Hall near St Breward

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


King Arthur’s Hall is situated in an area of open moorland that extends north towards the settlements and ritual monuments of Louden Hill, eastwards towards Garrow Tor and south to Hawkstor. The monument consists of fifty-six stones which originally stood upright forming the internal face of a steep sided rectangular bank. The stones, which may originally have numbered as many as 140, vary in height, the largest not exceeding 2m. The bank has slumped and may conceal other fallen stones. In the centre of the south side one of the stones has been set at right angles to the bank, obviously a deliberate choice and possibly marking some significant feature – the opposite position on the north bank is unfortunately disturbed. There is an entrance through the bank in the south-west corner – it is not stone lined and a rise in ground at this point may indicate that the bank was originally continuous, and the ‘entrance’ is a modern feature. The interior is slightly hollow with traces of rough paving in the north west corner. The interior fills with water during periods of heavy rain, and the contemporary ground level, if any traces survive, has not been identified.
