Notes: Possible site of a Neolithic barrow found in the field walls by the roadside near the top of Chittleford Hill. A very large orthostat, or shiner (sic), standing here which may have been a capstone. Nearby fields called "Shelstone Lay" point to the existence of a cromlech. Also the walls of the field contain a large number of very large slabs and pillar-like stones such as might have formed a megalthic tomb.
