Notes: Stone row reported by R.N. Worth in 1894 and referred to by R.H. Worth in 1953. The row is no longer visible. The NMR states: "R.N. Worth mentions, like Crossing, one stone row, while R.H.Worth notes one or more rows. These cannot be traced, and the depth of peat on the grassy plateau is so little that if the row/rows were obvious with slight shrinkage they should still be reasonably visible. Spaced stones abound, particularly towards the northern end and numerous fictitious rows of four of five stones can be deduced but nothing acceptable from any of the cairns."
