Two recumbant stones noted in 1975 were thought to be associated with Porlock Stone Circle; however, only one (thought to be part of the cairn structure and not a standing stone) could be identified in 1990.
Designated Status: none recorded
Two stones, both recumbent, to the northeast of the stone circle (MSO7898) and possibly connected with it. 
There is one stone on the margin of the cairn (MSO7926), 1.2 feet high, 1.7 feet long and 0.6 feet wide. 
Recumbent stones could not be identified in 1990. The upright stone is probably part of the cairn structure.
