An arrangement a few paces north of cosdon Hill 4 and of a very similiar appearance. Might be a modern arrangement, perhaps the work of stone cutters? There is a notable cist shaped hole within this feature. Lethbridge diagram p.152, photo bottom right p.153. This feature appears not to be mentioned anywhere else.
