Full Description

A line of upright boulders (1 to 1.5 metres in height) were noted during a walkover survey in May 2010. These are highly visible in the landscape on a north-facing slope at about 200m OD. It is not a definite archaeological feature, situated as it is within a landscape covered in boulder erratics and large amounts of stone. Nonetheless, the stones are upright and stand out strikingly in the landscape and could be a prehistoric alignment. <1>
