Once there were five stones here, a quidnunx, – four in a square with one in
the middle. Now only three remain as if it were a row, so the setting has
lost its pattern, and thereby its original meaning. In November 2001 local
archaeologists re-erected the middle stone and put down organic matting
round it. They covered it and the others with thorn bushes, in the hope of
preventing damage from off track vehicles and rubbing sheep. Details can
be found in A Condition Survey of STanding Stones in Exmoor National Park
Authority Owned Land, by Oliver Blackmore, a report by Exmoor National
Park. By the time I visited in April 2003, the thorn was missing from
highest stone. Shepherding by Landrover is a danger to these small stones.
