Site Description
Likely Bronze Age standing stone pair located near The Wick. A low pillar stone 0.57m higher and a broad flat stone 0.79m high and 1.13m long stand 0.68 m apart. 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.
