The northwest (300°) face of the standing stone.


According to the OS map there should be three standing stones in this area, but we only found one. It's in a private field. There are three houses across the road from the field, but apart from two terrible dogs that wouldn't stop barking, nobody was in and we weren't able to ask for the permission, so off we went anyway.
We walked southeast (160°) for about 170 metres on a slope of 10 metres.
The stone is 2.18 metres tall, 1.05 metres wide and 50 centimetres thick at the base.
The main axis of the stone is northeast-southwest (30°-210°).
