This low possible cairn measures 4m across. Its location high on Harland Edge, in association with two further small cairns and the Hob Hurst's House barrow, suggests it is a Bronze Age funerary structure. (1)
The cairn has been designated a scheduled monument. It comprises a low mound of surface-worn gritstones occupying gently sloping ground in open moorland to the north east of Harland Edge. It measures 4m x 4.5m and is 0.3m high. There are no signs of previous disturbance to the monument, indicating that it has avoided damage through antiquarian excavation or quarrying. The size and location of the cairn indicate that it is funerary in function and Bronze Age in date. (2)
Site monitoring has been carried out and site appears not to be under threat. (3)
