Category: Possible. Two of the stones stand in later Iron Age field boundaries which have remained in use. At least one stone has been cut by tare and feather splitting. It is possible that the south eastern stone was erected to form a gatepost and the others were erected during the Iron Age or even later. On balance however it is possible that this is the much truncated remains of a stone row, although it is unlikely that it will ever be possible to strengthen this interpretation and indeed field inspection might suggest that it is more likely to be uncertain or unlikely.
