Full Description

AOC Walkover January 2011

Large stone slab, c.1.5m by c.1.2m, possible fallen standing stone or cist cap. See report linked to related event record. <1>

This may be connected with MHG1240, which records the presence of several standing stones on a north-south alignment. <2>

The archaeologist who carried out the walkover survey does not think this stone is related to the stone alignment MHG1240. It was a good deal to the north and there were no other associated features. <3>
