Full description

FLETCHER, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV10257.

Vis=9/11/1988 (rchme) no significant features identified (fletcher).

RCHME, CITING OS, Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV144518.

Not a row, but remains of prehistoric field walling. Reference tovis=19/2/1980 (os) as on prowse's plan, there is a curvilinear bank of stones, of which a few large ones protrude the surface at intervals of 2m to 4m, and from 0.1m to 0.3m in height. There is no circle, but the line extends to the ne for about 20m and to the nw for 60m. It cannot now be seen to join the row of stones to the w and like those, it is not a stone row but the emergent part of a prehistoric field boundary (rchme, citing os).
