SS 73943820 Standing stones (Squallacombe III).
A stone setting situated on a fairly steep E facing slope above a gently sloping shelf. The site overlooks the confluence of two tributaries of the River Barle to rising ground beyond and it lies on undulating moorland in bracken and reed vegetation. The geology is the Morte Slate Series.
It comprises two low upright slabs 7m apart on an approximate NW/SE axis; no other stones or boulders are visible in the general area. The SE slab remains firmly set in spite of clumsy digging around its base which has resulted in aragged, shallow pit and a low spread soil heap on one side (1).
