Summary : Semi-circular bank on the upper ridge of Langstone Moor
More information : SX 5484 7792: A semi-circular bank, possibly the remains of a ring cairn, is situated in open moorland on a slight NW slope overlooking the Colly Brook.

The bank 1.4m to 2m wide and 0.4m high, composed of small and medium size stones is now largely turf-covered. It fades at each end of a near-perfect semi-circle which has a 14.9m internal diameter. There is a low stone pile, 0.2m high, in the SE quadrant. This feature possibly represents a damaged ring cairn.

Not depicted at 1/10000. (1)

As described by authority 1 but unlikely to be a ring cairn. Resurveyed using GPS September 2003(2)

Condition is poor but stable (3)
