A cist lies on the eastern bank of a stream two thirds of a mile
from Nun's Cross Farm. The cover stone and the south western side
stone have been removed. The north eastern side, which is formed
of two stones overlapping by 6 inches, is 3 feet 8 inches in length.
The average width must have been about 2 feet 7 inches. Some stones
still remain of the cairn or barrow which formerly covered the
cist. (2)

The cist, 0.8m by 1.2m and 0.2m above ground level, is as planned
by Worth. No cairn is visible. See photograph.

The remains of a cist lie some 80m E of the Whealam streamworks at SX 61666985, on gently sloping ground 50m S of the newtake wall. The remains consist of four granite slabs set into the ground, forming three sides of a trapezoidal structure. It measures 1.2m long and a maximum of 0.85m wide. The long side, unusually formed of two granite slabs, is oriented NW to SE. The maximum height which the stones protrude above the ground is 0.2m. The SW side of the structure is missing; there are no traces of a capstone or cairn. (4)
