Summary : Cairn (remains)
More information : (SX 63867602) Cairn (NR). (1)

The remains of a ruined cairn with no evidence that it ever
covered a cist. (2)

On a flattish spur to the south-west of Bellever Tor is the remains
of a cairn, now grass-covered, measuring 11.5m. in diameter and
0.5m. in height. It has a continuous hard packed rim which varies
in width from 0.8m to 2.5m., but loose stone within the rim suggests
that this is a robbed cairn. (see ground photograph).

Cairn. (4)

At SX 63867603 on level scrub covered moorland is a cairn visible as an unbroken circular bank 11.5m in external diameter. The bank 2.4 to 3.7m wide and a maximum of 0.75 m high externally encloses a flat platform c6m in diameter and 0.5m above the present ground surface.
Some small stones appear in the N and E margins ofthe feature and several larger stones are visible on the platform. There is no trace of a cist, and though the centre has been disturbed the impression is that the platform and rim are original features. (5)
