Manor Allotment stone setting

Stone Setting


Details of stones on Pastscape

At SS 8018 4369, on the south-west facing slopes of Manor Allotment, is an alignment of three stones. It lies in a patch of bracken on a heather-covered hillside, adjacent to a modern path.
The stones are aligned north-south and consist of (from north to south):
1. Edge-set slab (0.35 m long, 0.1 m high, 0.05 m wide).
2. Stub.
3. Edge-set slab (0.4 m long, 0.1 m high, 0.03 m wide).
The shortness of this alignment suggests that it is a stone setting rather than a stone row. The adjacent path poses a direct threat to this vulnerable moument. Found during field reconnaissance and surveyed at 1:100 scale. (1)
