The five monuments seen from the southeast.


This site comprises different kind of monuments, but the clearest ones are the three boulder burials aligned north-south (0°-180°) and equally spaced. The boulder to the north end is the biggest, with a massive stone that sits on three smaller stones. Seen from the east this boulder looks like a big piranha! The boulder in the middle is the smallest one and apparently it has no small stones to sit on.
The boulder to the south end sits directly on the ground with some small stones on its north side. Another monument that could be a half destroyed stone circle is about 2 metres east from the northernmost boulder burial. All that remains three stones to the west, south and north, and two fallen stone to the east end. The diameter would have been under 2 metres.
At about 15 metres southeast from the third boulder is another group of stones that might look like a dismantled and then reassembled stone circle. A low stone might have been the recumbent stone, a tall stone could have been the axial stone.
