Notes about this historic site

1 Stukeley described a barrow to the E of the King Stone, crossed by a dry-stone wall, which had stonework on its E side. Site 5, a small ring ditch, is clearly visible on a Cambridge air photograph (ABW 86). The air photograph is clearer in this case than the results of a geophysical survey undertaken in 1982.
