A cairn, at 270.0 m comprising a low turf covered mound of
stones, 5.5 m diameter and 0.2 m high. Around it five boulders
embedded in the turf, one probably the vestigial remains of a
cairn circle.

Surveyed at 1:10 000 on PFD. (3)

SX 56566550. A low turf covered mound 5.5m in diameter an a maximum of 0.25m high lies in open moorland immediately N of Brisworthy Farm. The site is now largely obscured by long grass. The alleged vestiges of the cairn circle appear very dubious. (4)
