|Description ||Butterdon Stone Row second longest on the moor . Single row 2000 metres
long. Azimuth 2 variable. The row run runs along a high plateau almost North
- South & starting from the southern end has a large terminal cairn. There is
a further cairn close by the row after about 600 m. The row then changes
direction a couple of times becoming azimuth 173. It becomes scrappy at the
North end finishing with a 2.3m high longstone that has been used as a
boundary stone. It is not at all certain that this was the original end of
the row. It could have run on further from here. Grid ref SX 6550 5870 is
for the mid row cairn on Butterdon Hill.
