"A stone row running north west - south east seen on the plateau west of Black Tor". The stones are very hidden and difficult to see. The row is headed at the NW end by two small cairns. Lethbridge suggests remains of cist in one of them, diagram p.85. See also HER 5752, SX 66 SE 89 and SX 66 SE 33. NB. There is also a possible second row about 200 metres away SiteID=1320
