Looking north along the row. All of the stones in this row are tiny (Scale 1m).
The surviving length of the stone row is situated on a north facing hill. It may once have extended as far as a stone circle situated just over the brow of the hill on a gentle south facing slope. Both the row and the stone circle are situated within enclosed farmland and as a result have been damaged. It is perhaps more remarkable that they have survived at all.
