A standing stone, 7ft 6ins high (4) formerly stood on the ridge in line with the Nine Maidens Stone Row (SW 96 NW 1). It has been broken up in modern times (5). According to Borlase it was 'once apparently surrounded by a small circle of stones on edge'. The Old Man (4) Magi Stone and White House (5) are all names given for this standing stone. (4,5)
