"Whether the stones represent the remnants of a stone circle, a cairn circle, or even a hut is debateable". "The remains of a circle of stones lie on a north-west facing hill slope at 256m above OD on unenclosed moorland. It survives as a partial ring of five boulder and stones with an off-centre earthfast boulder; the overall diameter was approximately 10.0m to 10.6m across. The largest of the two slabs which remain upright is 0.8m high, 1.7m wide and 0.3m thick."
