Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


Following the directions given by Les I found three candidates for the cairn cemetery.

This cairn as described by Les is almost 5m wide and about 0.5m tall. Some kerb survives on the site which is the least tree covered. Cairn material also survives poking through the turf.

Sadly this cairn has been badly trashed and has misplaced kerbs scattered. Trees cover the site which sits at 4m wide and 0.5m high.

In much the same condition as the previous site but the one I feel would do best if excavated.
