Dubious, Uncertain and Unlikely

Rogues Roost on Dartmoor probably represent a series of historic staddle stones.

Definitive evidence to support a prehistoric interpretation for stone alignments is rare. Nevertheless consensus of a sort is often reached and each new discovery is either accepted, rejected or placed on an uncertain/unlikely pile. Some of those that have been accepted probably were not alignments, some may have been the badly battered vestiges of other types of prehistoric remains or features of a later date and function. On the other hand some of those that have been dismissed may on further examination prove to be genuine. The list of sites that have been rejected for various reasons includes at least 312 monuments and basic details of these sites are presented below. An interactive map showing the distribution of these sites provides an alternative way to view the information available for these monuments. Over time research, fresh evidence and enhanced understanding may contradict the current accepted interpretation and in this event sites may be migrated to the main Gazetteer.

This list includes at least four items of information for each site and some have a short note in italics at the end. The information is separated by a comma. The information provided is Site Name, National Grid Reference (NGR), a one word description of the condition and interpretation. The interpretative summary includes the terms Uncertain, Unlikely and Not. These reflect varying reasons for doubting a prehistoric interpretation. Uncertain indicates that there is not enough evidence to support a prehistoric identification whilst unlikely means that there is no evidence to support a prehistoric date.  Finally those labelled Not are on the basis of current evidence considered not to be prehistoric stone alignments. Any evidence to challenge these interpretations will always be welcome. Please use the contact button.

Map showing the distribution of dubious, uncertain and unlikely stone rows. There are three separate layers . Uncertain rows are shown black, unlikely ones are shown green and those which are currently believed not to be rows are shown red.


Aish Ridge, SX 68134 60973, Not, Survives, An unfinished field boundary dated 1808.

Askham Moor 5, NY 49347 22084, Uncertain. Depicted by Taylor, M.W. in 1886 but not found since.

Assycombe Hill S, SX 6624 8117,  Survives, Uncertain

Avebury Z Feature, SU 10271 69907, Survives, Unlikely. Geophysical survey has indicated that it more likely to represent the remains of a square setting.

Bosley Minn, SJ 940 662, Survives, Unlikely. Five stones surviving as two pairs and a single stone standing on a largely robbed out field boundary. The stone pairs probably represent field gateposts. The relationship with the field boundary means that these stones probably formed part of an historic field wall. Whilst the possibility that at least some of the stones may predate the boundary cannot be entirely discounted without further evidence a prehistoric interpretation is unlikely.
