OK, so a confession first – I've visited this site about 5 times before, and photographed it each time. I've never posted it as I'm not convinced of its provenance. It is marked on the SMR at and this chap is convinced, so here it is.

It's deeply embedded in the soil and has been used very recently as a fairly permanent memorial. I get the feeling that when it was pushed over, an attempt was made to smash and bury it. One for the completist only, but I'm glad to record it.
