Notes: "Corringdon ball stone rows. Six or seven rows of small stones approximately 75m long, terminating at the east end in a small semi-circular stone setting of five stones, none more than 500mm high, and the alignments are irregular - they run along the contours. Situated on the open moor between the east and west glaze brooks. A complicated set of stones which can only be aligned into rows by exact survey. The direction of the rows is approximately south west". Described by R H Worth as two triple rows B & C. See also HER 14802 (Corringdon Ball B).
