Full Description

A mound is depicted on the 1st ed. 25" OS map of c. 1880 (1), and included in a list of possible barrows. (2) This 3m diameter cairn is almost certainly a recent walkers cairn. There is a second one nearby to the east which is obviously modern. Both lie in a col on an old routeway and a date as early as the medieval period could be postulated for the western cairn. (4)
