Site visited on 1st April 1995. Two clearance cairns within an historic field system on the west facing slope of ShadybackTtor. Both are oval and because of their location within a post-medieval field are considered to be of historic date. The southern cairn measures 5.5 metres by 4 metres and stands up to 0.3 metres high and is covered by loose rubble. The northern mound measures 4.5 metres by 2.6 metres and stands 0.3 metres high. Only the southern mound is mapped by the National Trust inventory and Butler.
