Full description

HANKIN, Untitled Source (Report - Survey). SDV144143.

Vis=14/4/1978 + 7/6/1978 (hankin) butterbrook. Sited in the butterbrook valley on the open moor, 44m east of the south east facing fence of butterbrook reservoir. The area is rock strewn and seems to have been left undisturbed by the reservoir builders (1914). A leaning stone, 30 degrees from the vertical, with flat surfaces on its north and south sides. The long upper side measures 2.03m, the width is fairly consistent at 0.88m except at the upper level which is 0.76m. The thickness at the ground level is 0.30m on the west side and 0.45m on the east side. Leaning at 30 degrees the height is 1.77m. About midway between the stone and hangershell rocks and almost in a direct line with the west-east, there is an orthostat height c.1.1m, which stands prominently in the wall of a hut circle, the only stone of size in the hut walls.
