Notes: Worth: Brown Heath, Butler: Hook Lake. "On the southwest slopes of Brown Heath a double stone row 182.0m. long runs from a cairn circle at its northern and higher end to the east side of the enclosure (SX 66 NW 50) where it is overlaid by the enclosure wall. The point at which the southern end of the row ended is therefore not easily determined. The row does not point exactly to the centre of the cairn, but to about 2.0m. to the East. The eastern part of the row contains more stones than the western part, in which there are notable gaps. There are a few large stones, the largest being 1.0m. high and measuring 1.0m. x 0.7m., but most are relatively small, their average height being 0.5m". Lethbridge p.74, diagram p.71.
