This standing stone is set in the NE corner of a field is a 3m tall pillar stone of Silurian
rock, 1m in width and  0.6m in depth, known locally as 'The Long Stone'. Excavation
revealed that the stone lay on the outer edge of a ring ditch, to which it seemed to be
related. A number of worked flints were found in the ditch fill and also scattered round
the surface. The ditch probably surrounded a burial and 1 or 2 specks of cremated bone
were found in the ditch.
