'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).
