Description : Triangular setting of upright stones, three stones form the triangle 11ft by 8ft by 9 1/2ft and have an average height of 6 1/2ft.
As described in RCAHM. There is no sign of a mound but the site is on the highest point of a low ridge. <2>
3 stones of similar size set facing approximately same orientation and approximately equidistant at 3m apart. Each stone is quite thin for its height and 2 look as though they may have been trimmed by battering to produce the tall narrow, approximately parallel shape. They are set on the exact summit of a low hill and are visible from a long way around. There is a hint of a mound around the stones but this is probably just an 'island' left by ploughing around the stones. (Smith, 2003)
