Primary Reference Number (PRN) : 1426
Trust : Dyfed

NGR : SN0013935804
Site Type (preferred type first) : Neolithic;bronze Age Chambered Tomb / Neolithic;bronze Age Standing Stone Pair

Summary :
There were originally two standing stones at this location which were "about 10 feet apart". By the time of the Ordnance Survey field visit in 1966 there was only one stone and the farmer is reported as saying that he had "taken up the other stone" and it now serves as a gatepost at NGR SN00113582 and is 1.4m high. The remaining stone is 1.4m high x 1m wide at its base and tapering towards the top. The stone is leaning slightly towards the NNW and there is a slight depression caused by animal treading around the base. Some 1.3m to the west there is an earthfast stone just protruding through the grass. The stone is in a stable condition. The removed stone was not visited at its reputed new location during this visit for the PFRS project. N Cook PFRS 2004
