Centred SX 66747108. One or two cairns and a short probably unfinished stone row lie in the north west facing hollow above Horse Ford on the O Brook. The cairn described by Authority 2 lies at the south end of the site with the surviving stones of the stone row to the north. As so few stones survive the exact form and extent of the rows is impossible to determine but there may have been as many as three parallel rows approximately 1.0 metre apart. Overlying or abutting the east row at SX 6672 7109 is a low turf covered mound 3.0 metes in diameter and 0.4 metres high. It is not clear whether this feature forms part of the monument or if it is associated with the shallow turf cuttings to the east. (3)

SX 6670 7108. Stone alignment associated with 2 Bronze Age funerary cairns forming part of a cairn cemetery on Holne Ridge west of Horns Cross. Scheduled.(4)
