"This stone row was initially noticed in late 2009, when the reservoir was only 6% full. This double stone row is aligned roughly north-west - south-east and is at least 54 meters in length. The size and form of the stones used varies considerably but the two rows are consistently 1.2 meters apart. The row leads directly to (or away from) the naturally occurring mound south-east of the stone circle." This row will be normally covered by the Tottiford Reservoir. The stones of the row were exposed for a short period following the drought of August 2022. From the northenern end the author took a photo at SX 81135 83102 (6/9/22). It was too muddy to get any closer and the grid reference of SX 81137 83093 is inferred and used for this entry. Max Piper visited the day before and got as close as SX 81129 83102 which is consistent with the inferred actual location.
