They are conspicuous in a longer denuded boundary of low, turf covered stones and may well have been incorporated into a field boundary. In April 2012 a conical flint core was found on the disturbed ground surface some 8m east-southeast of the standing stone pair. Plan and elevation published in Archaeology in Wales 54, p.190.
