Richards, A. F., 2012, Note on location (Personal Comment). SDV350733.

The grid reference given in the checklist places this monument outside of the yard, into a field to the east. As Robinson’s note states it is near the farmhouse in the yard, the map point for this monument has been moved into the vicinity of the farmhouse.
