From LinkExternal link : "An unrecorded stone circle was discovered consisting of an oval or elliptical ring, about 28m long and 21m wide, of 16 megaliths, all of which are prone and none are missing. Nine are totally buried in peat. The buried stones were probed and the whole ring surveyed in July 1992. As many of the stones have an associated cluster of packing stones it is considered that they once stood upright. It is possible that they were all felled in antiquity."
