Feature shown on 19th century map as 'Kistvaen (Remains of)'.

Site visited on 18th October 1978. Situated about 200 metres inside an enclosure which extends almost to Erme Pound. A scattered circle of ten stones, all about 1 metre length, of which only the north stone is standing. The largest stone lies on the south side, and is 1.5 metres in length. There is no particular feature within the circle. At first sight this circle of stones could be taken for a cist, especially if one has just come from the cist at the head of the double stone row lower down on brown heath southwards. There is a certain resemblance. The probability of it being a robbed hut circle is however, greater.
