The pair of stones in the private field, seen from the gate.


This pair of stones is in a private field, at about 30 metres southeast (140°) from the field gate. The map marks them as a standing stone. The two stones are aligned along the east-southeast (110°) to west-northwest (290°) axis. The eastern one is rounded and pointed, 1.25 metres tall. The other one has a squarish section and is flat topped with some grooves on its surface. It's 1.56 metres tall.
They are the typical male and female pair and in prehistoric times cattle were led between them to promote fertility.
The stones are 1.43 metres apart.
