Site Notes

Macalister/1945, 445: `standing on a moorland close to a power-station post'.

Okasha/1993, 174: `The stone is now in a field on a moor'.

Thomas/1994, 286: `stands in a field near the northern edge of the granite uplands. It has been a landmark for centuries'.

From the OS Explorer 9 map it can be seen that within a 1.5km radius of the stone lie a number of prehistoric standing stone monuments including the Nine Maidens Stone Circle and the MÍn-an-tol.

The site is near the parish boundary between Madron and Morvah.
