Full description

NMR CITING PATTISON, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV264950.

A: sx63607836 vaguely circular; 2m in diameter and 0.3m high. B: sx63617837 vaguely circular; 2m in diameter and 0.3m high. C: sx63637837 oval; 3.8 by 3.2m and 0.3m high. All are composed of small to medium size stones, now partly covered in vegetation. Only c has a clearly-defined plan a and b are vaguer stone piles. This suggests that they may be clearance as opposed to burial cairns (nmr citing pattison).
