Notes: Butler Trowlesworthy 1. "A Bronze Age stone alignment comprising a double stone row consisting of 99 upright and 8 recumbent stones running south-south-west from a possible stone circle near the foot of the south flank of Little Trowlesworthy Tor. The surviving length of the row is about 129 metres, it is bisected by a leat. The better preserved element of the row is down the slope from the leat. The circle comprises 8 main orthostat stones in a "kidney-shaped" plan. The south-west orthostat in the ring is surrounded by a number of smaller stones". Lethbridge p.57-8, diagram p.58.
