More information : SX 66647112. A probable but unusual cist is on
steep well drained, north west facing slope at 365m above OD. It
utilizes the south east side of a massive slab, 1.6m long, 0.4m
thick and 0.7m high, with smaller slabs 0.6m to 0.9m long and
0.2m thick, which barely project above ground level.

in diameter and 0.2m high. A second massive slab, which
