Featured Row – Trowlesworthy 2

Last week we looked at Trowlesworthy 1. A short distance to the west is a second stone row known as Trowlesworthy 2. This is a single stone row measuring 82m long, including at least 44 mainly medium-sized stones together with some small and large stones situated on a south west facing slope. The row is orientated east to west, there is a cairn at the upper eastern end and a tall pillar at the other. The row stands near another row, cairns and prehistoric settlements.
