Bellever Monuments Key

Some of the monuments in and around the Bellever/Laughter Tor/ Lakehead Hill area at one time each had a numbered post which related to it’s description etc. As a result of time and weather (possibly vandalism)  some still have their number posts in-situ and some have lost them. Either way from what I can establish there is no accessible key to what the numbers relate to which can be slightly frustrating if one is not conversant to the area. However, I did manage to get hold of a copy a sheet that lists each monument, its corresponding number, the scheduled monument number and the OS grid reference along with a map. This key and map has been reproduced below for anyone wishing to visit the area, it is advised the map be used in conjunction with an Ordnance Survey map and the grid co-ordinates. Please note that the map had been adapted from an old Ordnance Survey map and so the tree cover shown is much less today.
