Notes: Continued notes from Butter Brook S. "At 73 metres from the terminal there is a single orthostat 0.5 metre high, standing 3.25 metres off centre south from the projection of the rows, at the edge of a small clitter of broken stones. A third row, irregularly spaced and not showing much above ground,
meets the double section of the rows at an angle of about 10o on the north-west side, extending westward to about level with the terminal. Visual projection east-ward along the third row appears to be in line with the orthostat". Lethbridge 78 Rows 4/5 diagram p.77. Formerly listed as Butter Brook 2.
