More information : (SX 62867097) Cist (NR) (1)

A cist with one end stone missing (Plan)

This cist lies within a small cairn of 4.0m diameter on a
west-facing slope at 375.0m OD. The diagrams are correct and
the dimensions are as shown. The depth of the cist is 0.7m. See

SX 62867097. This fairly well preserved cairn and cist lies in rough moorland pasture on a peat covered hillslope.

The turf-covered cairn is, at maximum, 3.9m in diameter and 0.3m in height. The cist, oriented NW/SE, is approximately 1.3m by 0.55m, and 0.75m deep, and now almost hidden by the SW side stone which has fallen inwards. The NE end stone is not evident but an 0.7m high upright granite post retains part of the mound on this NE side. There is no trace of the coverstone. (4)
