A possible single stone row recorded at this location by John Aubrey in the 17th century is said to have consisted of a tall stone measuring more than 3m high from which extended a line of smaller stones. The row was destroyed in the 19th century but the field in which it stood is known as Longstones. The lack of a detailed description means it is not possible to be certain that this was a prehistoric stone row but on balance this interpretation seems likely.

Category: Possible. According to Aubrey a line of smaller stones led to a tall stone at this location. The stones were removed in the 19th century and therefore we cannot be certain that this monument was a stone row. There is however a strong possiblity that this was the site of a stone row.
