Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

SK 213844. A barrow, completely flattened and discernable only by a circular arc of stones flush with the ground; estimated diameter 6.0-7.0m. Found in 1957 by Mr A Miller. (1) Prominently situated at SK 21378435 just below the summit of a ridge on its south-west side is a hether-covered stony mound 7.0m in diameter and 0.6m maximum height. It is not flattened and does not answer completely to Mr Miller's description but it it what he is referring to and is without doubt a cairn in fairly good condition. (2) A round cairn situated on the edge of an escarpment (3) Scheduled. The cairn measures approx. 8m in diameter and appears to be undisturbed. Made of turf and stones rising to 0.6m high. The surrounding area appears to be uncleared. This suggests the mound was made as a funerary cairn. (8)
