Grid Ref : SX5473081360
Summary : Remains of a cairn measuring 4.6 metres in diameter and standing up to 0.6 metres high. A number of edge set stones, protruding up to 0.7 metres, surround the northern and eastern sides of the mound, representing a kerb. A single upright stone within the cairn may mark the remains of a second ring of stones.
More information : SX 54738137 Disturbed cairn with retaining circle. It is possibly the site of Crossing's poorly preserved cist. (1)

Visited February 1977. (2)

SX 54748137. A disturbed cairn measuring 5.2m N to S by 6.0m and standing a maximum of 0.3m high. Eight large upright slabs and boulders, up to 0.6m high, lie on the fringe of the mound to create a substantial retaining circle. There is no evidence to suggest the presence of a cist though is seems likely that the interior of the cairn has been used as a repository for cleared stone. A large number of relatively recent clearance cairns lie in the immediate area.
