SS 79664273: A setting of six upright stones forming a rectangle on a slight W-facing slope, above a short tributary of Badgworth by rushes and coarse moorland grass. Views from the setting are restricted to the valleys to the SW and N the remaining aspects are obscured by higher ground. It occupies an area characterised by quantities of surface stone from the underlying Hangman Grits series.

The monument is composed of sandstone slabs and posts 9.7 m and 10m long, orientated approximately WNW-ESE. Each row contains three stones at intervals of between 4.4 and 5.2 m. Their long axis are roughly aligned with the rows.

The monument appears more or less complete, with no evidence for a continuation of its rows in either direction.
