More information : (SX 61176696) Cist (NR) (1)

Cist (Listed as 'F' by Worth) found at Deadman's Bottom, Langcombe,
by Mr. Button. The cover-stone is still in position but the cist
appears to have been rifled, the end and side-stones having been
displaced at the north-east and southwest angles. Original length
would appear to have been 2 feet 10 inches, and the width 1 foot
7 inches. The greatest length of the cover-stone is 4ft 9 inches
and its greatest width 3 feet 1 1/2 inches. (2)

At about 415m. OD, on a slight west slope, is a turf-covered cairn
5.5m. in diameter and 0.4m. high. A cover-stone 1.5m. long by
0.6m. wide and 0.3m. thick conceals the underlying cist.

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