Lower end of stone row. "A stone row, 300 yds S 41o W from Glasscombe Corner. The southern 368 feet are a double row and the northern 212 feet 6 inches a single row. The northern part has lost no stones and the change from double to single is abrupt and complete. At the S.W. end are the remains of a cairn and at the NE. end is a retaining circle with many of the stones fallen. It would appear thus that there was a grave at either end of the row. "
