Archaeology Notes

NC83SW 6 827 322.

NC 827322. A fan-shaped setting of stone rows consisting of about 80 small stones set in ten rows covering an area about 12m square. The sector is set out on slightly rising ground to the north with the main axis set NNW.

L J Myatt 1975

The stone rows are generally as described by Myatt. They are best preserved in the SW corner where the largest stones occur. Elsewhere the stones are generally smaller with a fair number displaced, hence the pattern of the rows is difficult to interpret in this area. A clearance heap at the NW corner probably overlies some stones but there is no clear evidence of this. The Bronze Age cairn 180m to the NE appears to have no influence on the siting or orientation of the rows.

If an analogy is drawn with the stone rows on Learable Hill (NC82SE 6) the stones are orientated WSW-ENE with their axes set transversely to the line of the rows.

Surveyed at 1:10 560.

Visited by OS (J B) 25 Feburary 1977
