Full Description

Rough jumble of large boulders forming a sinuous dyke (Plate 10), trending from here to 130 degrees along the top of a break in slope above the stone-rimmed pit (MHG53923). It may be just a consumption dyke or a cultivation strip boundary.

A prehistoric date is suggested, but this must remain tentative. <1>
