Archaeology Notes

NG49NW 3 4207 9680.

At NG 4207 9680, on top of a rocky knoll, are the turf-covered remains of a cairn 4.7m in diameter and 0.6m high. Though there appears to be traces of a rough kerb on the S side, this cannot be positively identified as a burial cairn; it may be a clearance heap or some kind of marker cairn.

Visited by OS (N K B) 7 July 1969.
