Butler Laughter 2. "A double stone row at about 395m OD cuts across the gentle SW projecting spur of Laughter Tor in an area of heather and rough grass some 12m WSW of the standing stone 'Laughter Man'. The stones, although all relatively small in size, form two good slightly curving rows oriented about 295 degs. and 0.7m to 1.2m apart, consisting of thirteen stones extending from SX 6519075381 some 15m ESE to SX 6520475375. Now visible are six stones in each row with a single stone at the NW end. Originally there may have been at least ten in each row at intervals of about 1.2m". Lethbridge pp.121-122.
