Notes

A stone row and cairn circle. The cairn circle measures approximately 12.6m in diameter and has eleven stones. The disturbed central cairn is 9.5m in diameter and 0.4m high. The row, double in part, extends 356m north from the cairn circle to one stone beyond Worth's small menhir. None of the slab or pillar-shaped stones exceed 1.0m. in height, the majority being quite small and just protruding from the turf with many stones apparently missing. Consequently there is no observable regular spacing between the stones.
