The Devil's Den
The Devil's Den
This Neolithic burial chamber was reconstructed in 1921. The original megaliths are sarsens (found in abundance round about on the downs), and the concrete pedestal (bottom right) is part of the modern reconstruction work. Until 2007 the monument was isolated in a large arable field, then Permissive Access was arranged by Natural England. A triangle of land containing the monument alongside the Clatford Bottom bridleway has been fenced off and reverted to grassland - signs next to the two access gates suggest that walkers have "...the opportunity to view the dolmen and enjoy the mysterious atmosphere close-at-hand. The site is ideal for picnics on the recently converted grassland and links with existing paths and bridleways in the area."
