Notes

Situated on a low knoll on the south slope of Carperby Moor are five free-standing stone slabs, marking the surviving two thirds of the circumference of an elliptical stone circle. The stones are between 0.40 metres and 0.55 metres high and range in width from 0.65 metres to 0.90 metres. The most easterly of the stones is considerably smaller. The stone circle is partially obscured by thick heather, but has a diameter of 16.5 metres.
