Notes: Butler Row 2, NMR Row 2, Worth Row C. Terminated by the tallest standing stone on Dartmoor. It is 4.2m in height with a distinctive bulging profile at the top the broad face is across the row unlike the other two Drizzlecombe rows. Interestingly this stone is photographed in Worth's Dartmoor prior to being re-erected. Worth suggests it was probably dragged here from Higher Hartor Tor about 1km away. This standing stone has 3 smaller cairns in close proximity. This is the shortest of the three rows at 83.2m but has larger slabs set further apart with the largest near the cairn. Lethbridge Row B. pp.38-42. Diagram p.38. See also: Sea Views at Drizzlecombe 2
