Full description

Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, 1925 - 1974, SX69SW4 (Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division Card). SDV270298.

Site of probable stone circle, destroyed around 1874.
According to a letter from a H. H. Breton (18/03/1925), around 50 years ago (1874), a small stone circle of very large stones existed above Sticklepath, below Cawsand. There is no trace remaining now. (1925)
Exact site required, but the monument was probably only an unimportant one (a cairn circle). (1950)
Site not located; probably as Crawford suggests (1950), a cairn circle, and robbed for local walling. (1974)
