Notes

A circle of stones set into a low platform or bank, suggesting that the monument may be an embanked stone circle or kerbed platform cairn rather than a simple stone circle. No artefact discoveries can be firmly attributed to the site although claims have been made for a bronze spearhead, a flint arrowhead, and a probable Beaker, all 19th century finds.
