Full Description

A number of slabby stones, placed on their side, plus a number of other stones. All are large in size. Orientated W-E. <1>

A walkover survey in July 2009 found no trace of any stones at this grid reference, only an area of open ground, possibly former peat cuttings. The track in this area is very washed out. A few piles of stones were visible in the vicinity none of which looked archaeological. <2>
