Full Description

A spread collection of approximately 50 mainly flat stones form a rough oval platform measuring 3m by 2m. There is a suggestion of revetting on the east side and a possible circular setting 0.75m in diameter to the south. This is of unknown function and date, but appears to be shallow and not overgrown, nor has it been removed for past ploughing, so is likely to be relatively recent in date (Photos 23,24). <1>
