SK 255 757. Irregular enclosure west [this should read east] of Curber Edge. (1, 2)
A circle of stones, stone bank and 10 cairns, none apparently burial mounds, varying in size from 2.0m - 6.0m diam, and 0.3m - 0.7m high. Surveyed at 25". Centred at SK 2549 7580. (3)
A series of Bronze Age cairns with associated clearance banks forming a prehistoric field system. About 15 cairns concentrated primarily in the northern and southern ends of the monument. The area has been widely cleared of surface stone - the cairns varying between 2m and 8.5m in diameter. Some are ovoid. Primary function is thought to be clearance, but some may have been reused for funerary activity. The monument includes clearance banks - low and wide banks to a height of .6m. They define linear and irregular cleared areas. There are also a series of smaller enclosures or 'yards'. Scheduled. (4)
