A 19th century letter from Hugo Reads otes that urns were found together with two cupmarked stones lying in the stackyard of Stone Low Farm near a barrow. He illustrated one; it is difficult to determine if this is a genuine carving and the original does not survive. Bateman notes that the barrow in the stackyard, which contained two large urns, was dug in 1830 (SMR 2301). If the carved stones were correctly identified, they may have been part of a cist. (1)
