Spartleton Cairn



Friday 23/8/02
Atop Spartleton, the highest hill around the Whiteadder archaeological landscape, a cairn 17 m in diameter. Despite a triangulation pillar just to the north and a modern summit cairn built on top, the original cairn still stand to about 1.2 m. The view from the summit is amazing. I sit here for ages soaking in the scenery, contemplating the ancient land around, then plug into my CD player and let Godpseed You Black Emperors ‘Lift Yr Skinny Fists’ wash over me- a phenomenal soundtrack to an equally phenomenal land.
