Somerset West and Taunton
Grid Ref : SS8165043890
Summary : A turf covered stony mound on Kittuck Hill, most probably a prehistoric cairn.
More information : For details see county SMR. (1)

A turf covered stony mound, SS 8165 4389, lies in an area of rough grassland and heather moor near the summit of Kittuck Hill. It is a prominent, circular feature, 4.7m in diameter and 0.6m high, with a small area of erosion on the north side exposing some stones; there is no trace of an outer ditch. The mound is most probably a cairn dating from the Bronze Age. (2)
The feature was recorded at 1:2500 scale using differential GPS as part of an archaeological survey of the Larkbarrow area. The survey was undertaken by the Exeter office of English Heritage at the request of the Exmoor National Park Authority. A client report was produced as part of the survey work and is available from the NMRC, Swindon. (3)
