Site Condition Incomplete
Details Stone circle; all that remains is a stony dyke surmounted by the remains of a ring of trees; dyke does not appear to have been part of original structure and probably built at time of destruction of circle and planting of trees. Coles assessment of the site as a triple, concentric circle is suspect in that several of the larger stones are loose and obviously not in situ and some are merely the base of the dyke. The innermost circle is of long, narrow blocks set on edge of which eight are in situ; the middle circle is of broad massive stones of which 3 remain; date of disturbance unknown.
