Artificial Mound


A possible passage tomb according to Herity. He lists it as Kd 1 in the Inventory section of his book (the other 2, Kd 2 and Kd 3, are both in Broadleas Commons and are highly unlikely candidates for this classification, so this entry must be taken with a pinch of salt).

"This circular hilltop cairn, 18m across, standing at 352m (1154') O.D. A depression on top may indicate that it is a passage grave.
The cairn is marked on the 1839 edition of the Six-Inch Map."
[Mr. P. Danaher]
