Category: Uncertain. It is very likely that these stones owe their positions to prehistoric activity. However it is unclear whether they originally formed part of a stone row. The minimum deviation from straight would have been 30° providing there was a shift of alignment at the middle stone. Rows are known (eg, Shap) where a deviation greater than this has been recorded and therefore the stones could have formed part of a stone row. However because only three stones survive there really is currently not enough evidence to support a stone row identification. It is possible or even likely that this site represents a stone pair and solitary standing stone.
