The complete stone circle seen from the southwest.


The OS map marks this site as a standing stone.

The stones are in a field used as a pasture for the cattle, and we were going to give up, but we found the landowner at the site and he kindly granted us the access to the stone circle.
Unfortunately the grass around the place hadn't been cut for a very long time and most of the monument was hidden in the grass, with a diminished visual effect. The stones are protected with an electrified fence.
There are 13 stones in the circle over a diameter of about 9 metres. They have different height, with the smallest one at northwest (320°) and the tallest one at east (90°), which has a height of 2.04 metres. The stone at east-southeast (110°) has a band of quartz at its base, and the small stone at south-southwest (190°) is a white block of quartz.

About 25 metres to the southeast there's a Boulder burial.
