Summary : Bronze Age cairn, barrow containing a cist, and double stone row between the two. The barrow at the North end of the rew is up to 6.0m across and 0.4m high, and it contains a cist. The cairn at the South end of the row is 8.5m x 7.3m and 0.5m high.

More information : (SX 65518406) Cist (NR) (Site of) (NAT).

(SX 65498405) Cairn (NR) (Site of) (NAT). (1)

A cairn and a cist in a barrow are separated by a distance of
104 ft in which there are clear evidences of a ruined double row.
(Seven stones shown on plan). (2)

The cairn is 9.1m in diameter; a flint flake was found during
the excavation (in 19th century). The double row is very ruined
and in 1976 had been planted over. The cairn at the north end of
the row is 7.0m in diameter, with two stones of cist remaining,
the north end and the west side stones. The 19th century excavation
produced burnt bones. (3)

Centred at SX 65518404 is a cairn. 45m to the N at SX 65508409 is a barrow containing the remains of a cist. Between the two are the very fragmented remains of an alleged double stone row running N to S parallel to another row (SX 68 SE 59) which leads towards Fernworthy Stone Circle (SX 68 SE 56).
The row, barrow and cairn have all been comprehensively damaged by afforestation and the digging of the adjacent drainage channels. Seven stones survive of an alignment but there is little evidence that it was a double row.
The barrow at the N end of the row measures up to 6m in diameter and is 0.4m high, although its shape is obscured by drainage channels. The cist in the centre is represented by two stones set at right angles, 0.4m tall internally.
The cairn at the S end of the row measures 7.3m N to S by 8.5m and is 0.5m high. There is a large amount of surface stone on and around it. (4)
