The small cairn, diameter 15 to 16 feet, found by Mr. J. H Dobson

and found to contain a rifled cist. Internal measurements of the
cist are, length 36 inches, breadth 26 inches, depth 38 inches to
41; inches. Two worked flint flakes were found at a depth of
28 inches. Five stones were noted which may be the remains of a
retaining circle. (2-4)

SX 63786607. A fine cist at Redlake Foot measuring internally, 0.7m.
by 1.0m. and 1.0m. deep single slabs form the end-stones and the
southern side-stone. The northern side is a slab resting on a
horizontal 'post' type stone.

The partly displaced coverstone is 1.0m. square and 0.1m thick.

The cist is within a cairn 5.5m. in diameter and 0.5m. high on
the west side, but merging into the west facing hillslope on its
east side. A few large stones with a high quartz or spar content
protrude from the turf near the perimeter but are not certainly
part of a retaining circle.
