Full Description

An upright tapering trapezoidal slate slab with some minor growth of moss and grass is set on the northwest corner of Bill Hill, measuring 0.7m x 0.8m x 0.1m. The setting appears to have little stone within its setting hole, and is loose within an erosion hollow (1.2m x 0.8m x 0.1m). The erection of this stone is likely after 1990, when the nearby site of MSO12161 was visited by the RCHME, a site which has been badly damaged and almost destroyed. It is unknown if the erection of the stone is linked to that event. [1]
