This cist appears to have been destroyed for at the plotted
position there is only a large hole with a slab of rock on one
side below ground level. (4)

A turf covered cairn and cist is at SX 6174 7018, on a north facing slope. Just protruding above the turf is a small amorphous cairn 3.2m E-W, 1.8m N-S with a peat filled cist 0.6m square.

The NW sidestone, 0.8m long by 0.2m wide and the NE endstone 0.6m long, 0.15m wide are the only recognisable cist stones though it is possible that the SW side was formed by the two small slabs still visible and depicted by Worth. There is no coverstone. (5)
