More information : Detailed description in SMR. (1)

Among the sites recorded under the S.M.R. number (1) are two near the
junction of Embercombe Water and Chetsford Water. McDonnell notes a
stone row north of the major row (SS 84 SE 18), without details, and
Burrow records a standing stone "possibly belonging to this complex".
Burrow's stone is almost certainly that at SS 8554 4211, on the lip ofthe steep combe of Chetsford Water. Acceptable as a standing stone itis a vertical slab 0.6 metres high, 0.15 metrs thick and 0.6 metres
long, with a horizontal top, and oriented north/south.
Its situation is such, that if it were part of a row, it would have tobe an end stone for a row towards the south, or a blocking stone for
one to the east. McDonnell's row could not be found. Eastwards a
strip of pasture follows the top of the valley while to the south,
there is dense heather, which was searched so far as practicable.
