Category: Uncertain. Only one stone is upright and near to it is a broken stump. A couple of the larger recumbent stones are likely to have once stood upright but most of the stones are probably exposed bedrock. Whilst it is likely that there was a group of standing stones at this location not enough remains to establish their original form and therefore it is not possible to be confident that there was a stone row at this location.
A stump in the foreground and the only upright stone beyond. View from south east (Scale 1m).
The southernmost stone in the group may once have stood upright (Scale 1m).
A recumbent stone together with possible packing (Scale 1m).
Two edge set stones at the northern edge of the group could be packing for a lost upright or natural bedrock. View from south (Scale 1m).
A large slab and smaller stones beyond denote the western side of the group. View from south (Scale 1m).
The south easternmost stone with the upright stone in the background. View from south east (Scales 1m).
Amble car parking is available at SS 76511 43232. From here head south east across the moorland to the row.
