NT15SW 38 11 52.

While the valley floor is now underwater, West Water Reservoir has cut a section across the prehistoric landscape. Two undated clearance cairns were excavated to the E of NT15SW 37 and a late Neolithic or Food Vessel urn rim sherd was recovered from the water-deposited gravel between the two cairns. A range of lithics, comprising tools, flakes and cores of chert, flint and agate, was recovered from the reservoir foreshore.
