A double stone row measuring 147m long, including at least 17 small and medium-sized stones situated in a reservoir in a narrow valley. There is a further stone row, stone circle and mound in the immediate vicinity. The row is orientated NNW to SSE and was partly excavated in 2010. A C14 date of 4590-4450 cal. BC from the fill of a socket is considered to have come from earlier material incorporated into the fill and therefore of no dating value.
