"A single stone row stands on Launceston (Langstone). Moor circa 330 feet in length, probably longer when complete. There are now only 18 stones, the largest of which stands only 18 inches above ground. At the north end are the remains of a barrow, now reduced to little more than a rubble ring. At the south end is the standing stone known as the 'Langstone', from which the moor probably takes its name. The stone was re-erected in 1893 and stands to a height of 9 feet 3 inches." Lethbridge p14, diagram p13.
