Category: Not. This feature includes a number of closely set stones leading to a rubble bank on the same alignment. It is clearly not a stone alignment, but does predate the field boundary. It is probably the remains of a prehistoric field wall. There are many similar field walls in the vicinity and therefore it should be considered as forming part of a field system.
