More information : (SX 59126713) Stone Circle (NR) (Remains of). (1)

Remains of a kerb circle eighty yards south of the cist known
as "Drizzlecombe Northern" (SX 56 NE 23). Almost total
excavation in 1914 revealed half an 11 ft diameter cairn circle
and the slight remains of a cairn. Notable finds were three flint
flakes and a "well finished" flint scraper. (2)

The remains of this kerb circle consist of 7 stones surviving
in the eastern half. Two are 0.3m high, the others are flush with
the ground; all average about 0.5m in length. The original
diameter was approximately 3.3m. There is a possibly displaced
block of stone, 0.3m by 0.2m by 0.1m high, isolated on the east
side of the perimeter. A very slight rise possibly indicating the
cairn is visible within the circle.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on PFD. (3)

The remains of this ring cairn lie in deep heather and bracken vegetation and are now difficult to see. Probing revealed the presence of the remnants of the low stone kerb as described by Barton (3). (4)

Depicted and described by Butler (5).
