MDE9892 - Alledged Stone Setting, Above Worthy Water and Hoccombe Combe (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
Two photographs of possible stone-setting at SS 79024461 supplied to the NAR.  SS 79024461. Situated about 340 metres Ordnance Datum on the flattish summit of a spur overlooking the junctions of Worthy Water and Hoccombe Combe is a small area of surface stones scattered over the rough grass and bracken covered hill crest. Although some of the stones appear to be set upright, these are no more than a fortuitous grouping.  The site was subject to survey in 2012. One stone, measuring 0.69m high by 0.38m wide and 0.12m thick was recorded and noted as having been moved to sit within the field boundary, though it may originally have formed a stone setting. A natural scattering of stone was also noted.
