More information : (SX 56586668) Cairn (NR). (1)

This cairn is situated below the flat top of Ringmoor Down in a
'false crest' position facing south east, at about 310 m OD.
Its diameter is 12.0 m and height 0.5 m. Two contiguous stones
on the north and five on the south form part of a kerb circle
6.0 m in diameter. They protrude 0.3 m from the flat top of the
cairn which is eccentrically placed around the circle.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on PFD. (2)

This cairn remains as described by Authority 2. The presence of a kerb around the crest of the mound is rather unusual and possibly the result of robbing or reconstruction.
