Description -: This is a site that may have been different than it is today. The block stone may have sat on top of the standing stones. Although only one of the stones is still standing. This would have given it a door shape. Many of these sites lay on ley-lines which are the Energy lines of the planet. And a door shaped site begs many questions. Sometimes there are stories of healing properties associated with these site i.e. you would walk through the site in a certain direction. Other stories tell of being able to move between different lands and other worlds or realms like the fairy realm.
