Notes: "The cist was examined in 1895/6 but nothing was found. It was surrounded by a double retaining circle and a stone row lead from it north west, of which ten stones remained, but these had sunk into the bog leaving only their tops showing". SRGB states: "This description makes it clear that this is unlikely to be a stone row since a row composed of small stones would not have survived the ditch digging involved in the building of the hedge. It is much more likely that they represented stones exposed in the side of the ditch." HER also has: "The stone row which falls in an afforested area could not be identified and has probably been destroyed."(1979) (E. Dart).
