The National Monument Survey has this one down as a single Standing Stone, but it's obviously a pair. The bigger of the two is a massive seven and a half feet tall and around three and a half feet wide and deep. The second stone is a mere stump.
There used to be another standing stone on the other side of the road and is still marked on the OS map but was removed a while ago.
