Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

Roughly circular gritstone cairn with a diameter of 4m and a height of 0.5m. Traces of a gritstone kerb are visible at the edges of the cairn. Scheduled. (1) This small probable cairn measures 3.5m across, has one possible kerb stone visible and has been robbed to the south-east side. Its location high on Harland Edge, in association with further small cairns and barrows, suggests it could be a Bronze Age funerary structure. (2)
