Notes: Butler Trowlesworthy 2. "A single stone row consisting of 35 upright and 13 recumbent stones running in an E to W line from the site of a possible ring cairn at the foot of the SW flank of Little Trowlesworthy Tor. The cairn at the head of the row is marked by a circle containing one upright and eight fallen small slabs and boulders. Within these is a slightly raised area, perhaps the remains of a cairn." Lethbridge p.57-8, diagram p.58.
