Notes: Turner D3. Dixon #101. Bar Rep. 68. Butler Brockhill Ford W. - Vol. 4. Map 57.18 (pp.151-2 diagram p.152). Grinsell DEAN PRIOR 2 (SW of Brockhill Ford). "The side stones, both 1.4m long, lean inwards and the end stones north west 0.7m long, southeast 0.8m long, are firmly set. The probable coverstone, 1.2m by 0.8m, is displaced and lies to the south east of the cist. The cist is surrounded by the remains of a stone circle, long axis 8.8m, aligned with cist, short axis 7.2m. It is constructed of large slabs, up to 1.4m long with a single upright stone, 0.5m high, set contiguously in the north west arc. There are no visible remains of a cairn."
