Monument Number 867260

Hob Uid: 867260
Location :
Somerset
West Somerset
Exmoor
Grid Ref : SS7394038200
Summary : A Bronze Age stone setting comprising 2 standing stones visible as upright slabs 7m apart. The SE slab has a shallow pit and a low spread of soil to one side.
More information : SS 73943820 Standing stones (Squallacombe III).

A stone setting situated on a fairly steep E facing slope above a gently sloping shelf. The site overlooks the confluence of two tributaries of the River Barle to rising ground beyond and it lies on undulating moorland in bracken and reed vegetation. The geology is the Morte Slate Series.
It comprises two low upright slabs 7m apart on an approximate NW/SE axis; no other stones or boulders are visible in the general area. The SE slab remains firmly set in spite of clumsy digging around its base which has resulted in aragged, shallow pit and a low spread soil heap on one side (1).

An additional table of information on the stones is held in the archive.
