View from west.  The rock beside the ranging rod is probably natural but may have led to the identification of this site as a possible stone row. View from west (Scale 1m).

The northern stone measures 0.22m long by 0.28m wide, stands up 0.98m high and is orientated at 130°. The stone leans significantly to the north and would have originally stood 1.12m high. View from west (Scale 1m).
