Described by Worth as a mortar stone. "A large undressed block of granite built into a hedge has been identified as a cup-marked rock. There are 15 discrete cup-marks ranging from 80mm to 40mm in diameter and 25-5mm deep. These other shallow depressions may also be cup-marks". "Down a muddy lane at Brisworthy Hamlets". Lethbridge photo and diagram p.34.
