SS 66774252. A natural block, 0.5m high and 1.3 by 1.0m across, exposed in a deep sheep-erosion hollow. It is similar to other sub-surface blocks in the vicinity which are being removed by the farmer to improve the pasture. In the past it has been interpreted as either the surviving element of a possible stone row (1905) or as a standing stone (1970).
