Monument record MDR3708 - Robbed cairn, Little Bumper Piece

Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A ring of rubble is all that remains of this robbed cairn. It is 5m in diameter. (1) This low cairn was first identified in the early 1980s. It measures 5m across and has had its centre removed by wall builders or quarrymen leaving a hole measuring 3m across. It is built of worn surface-gathered stone and is therefore not associated with the nearby quarries. The feature is almost certainly a Bronze Age cairn, presumably a burial structure rather than an agricultural one, given the lack of further features in the vicinity. (2)
