Notes: A stone row on the western slopes of oke tor. The stone row runs a little north of west and south of east directly downhill towards the river(east okement). It is single, and runs between two large stone slabs which probably once formed part of cists, and at the further end two large stones lying prone within 2m of each other. One of the two slabs is set amidst other stones which may have formed a circle. Between the slabs is a fallen stone.(worth). Grinsell gives ngr 610-902- for apparently the same site. The cist is contained in the remains of a cairn.
