This monument includes a triple stone row alignment, a cairn and short length of hollow way situated on a gently sloping natural shelf to the eastern flank of Cosdon Hill. It is known locally as The Graveyard and comprises a 138m long triple row of at least 118 stones whose height gradually increases uphill (west) to the cairn. The height increase to 1m where the blocking stones stand in front of the cairn. The rows are cut through by a hollow way that was part of peat track from the moorland down to South Zeal. It is thought that the stone rows were a great deal longer, running down the hill, but many stones have been removed for wall building over the ages but what remains is still one of the finest examples in the country.
