Monument Number 1036059

Hob Uid: 1036059
Location :
Somerset West and Taunton
Grid Ref : SS7802042570
Summary : A prehistoric stone setting comprising c. 10 stones either arranged in a double row or a more rectangular arrangement. Only 2 of the stones remain upright, the rest are visible as recumbent stones of mere stumps.
More information : A stone setting discovered in 1989 (1a).

Centred at SS 78014261, the setting lies 130m west-north-west of the rectangular enclosure on Lanacombe, and 180m south-west of the Lanacombe 1 stone setting.

It occupies fairly steep, south-facing slopes and on its eastern side is a shallow stream gulley. To the south is an area of marsh and reeds.

The setting consists of possibly ten stones, two of which form well preserved uprights (A and B). There is no clear pattern in the arrangement of the stones: they may form a double row on a north-south alignment, or alternatively a more rectangular setting, the eastern part of which has been largely destroyed except for stones I and J.
