 Record Name Mudbeck West cairn / stone circle
 Record Description This site is approximately 200m nearly due west of the Mudbeck stone circle. It is situated on top of a terminal moraine knoll and is about 12m higher than the Mudbeck circle. At the centre of the feature are a group of 5 stones which could be the remnants of a cairn. Surrounding the cairn there is evidence of a series of stones that may form a stone circle, although the site appears to be slightly ovoid. Approximate size (pacing) appears to be in the order of 25 x 30 metres. There are a number of surrounding features / stones which appears to add to the site's complexity.

The site needs to be further investigated including a GPS survey.
