'The stones which intersect are much larger than the others; some are topped with white quartz crystals, others are of white (red) granite. The whole alignment is on an area of grass, everywhere else around here is gorse. There are odd stones occasionally throughout, perhaps dispelling the little cairns as field clearance. Sheep graze the grass, perhaps thats why there was a house built just up from & overlooking the alignment. Three of the lines stud the hillside prominantly, the other three only obvious when you walk toward them.'
