"A stone row about 42 metres long is situated on south sloping ground at SX 65145995, just north of the marshy Butterbrook valley. It is aligned south south west/north north east, and terminates at the south end in a hollow-centred ring of turf and stones of 2.5 metres diameter east/west, 3.2 metres north/south. The first stone in the row is 10.35 metres from the centre of the terminal, thereafter the spacing becomes about 3 metres. The maximum height of the stones is 0.67 metre. The row becomes double for about 12.5 metres (four to five pairs of stones), with a distance of 0.4 to 0.5 metre between rows, after which only the second row appears to continue." Lethbridge p.78 Rows 4/5 diagram p.77. Formerly listed as Butter Brook 1
