View south over the south and west bank and ditch.
henge sits on a small plateau of land with Wharfdale to the west and Hebden
Beck to the east surrounded by low hills but with open views down towards the
south across the Grassington area. The henge itself is tiny, with a 20-22 metre
internal area surrounded by a 3.5 metre wide ditch and then a 3-4 metre wide outer
bank that survives to a height of about half a metre. This bank is made of stone
and earth and covered with turf with a single causeway to the southeast, just
to the north of this a section has been damaged by recent quarrying.
