Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

'Cist' comprises two large limestone slabs, one on its edge, the other set parallel, but lying as if it has fallen over. While it is probable that the stones are a fortuitous natural grouping, the possibility exists that they are vestiges of a man-made structure. One possibility is that this was a burial cist, measuring c. 1.5 by 0.6 metres internally and standing 0.45 metres high. (1,2).
