Category: Plausible. This row is composed entirely of small stones which are only visible after periods of prolonged drought. This has meant that doubts have in the past been expressed regarding its identification. There can be little doubt that there is a prehistoric stone row at this location because it has been seen by separate people over the years.
Roadside car parking is available next to the row at SS 73238 37254. This site is best visited after a prolonged period of dry weather.
