Site Description NAR SH39SE5

This is an arrangement of three standing stones or erect slabs, all roughly 2.0m high, set in a triangle of 3.3m by 2.4m by 2.9m. They all appear to have their long axis aligned north-west to south-east, displaying notably eccentric profiles.
The stones occupy the highest point of a low ridge and recent internet accounts tend to concentrate on the view rather than the stones themselves. Stone settings such as these are generally identified as Prehistoric ritual or ceremonial monuments, most likely Bronze Age. However, a more recent date and a more mundane function cannot be rulled out.
