Notes: "A group of four concentric stone circles of which the innermost one is considered to be a cairn circle. Three stones were standing in 1921 when all the fallen stones were raised during restoration. There also appears to have been a stone row leading away from the stone circles." and "The double row as planned by Worth except that one stone is now missing. It is 6.9m long with mostly small line slabs, set on edge. They are about 0.3m long and 0.3m high, the intervals between stones and between the rows being 0.8m".
