Cairn circle at the southern end of the Shaugh Moor stone row. "An egg-shaped ring of stone uprights". "Only an arc of four clearly identifiable stones survive in the circle; they are a maximum 0.3m high and suggest an approximate circle diameter of 15.0m. There are a number of buried and semi-buried stones traceable but their relationship to the circle is unclear". Lethbridge p.54-55, diagram p.55
