Gibbet Moor West

Ring Cairn


The National Monuments Record list a "probable bronze ring cairn (with central cairn) on Gibbet Moor" at SK27894 70557. The NMR report claims it was unrecognised before the RCHME survey 1988-90. It is distinct from the 3 sites in a NW/SE line near SK 27965 70649 which were once interpreted as ringcairns, which Barnatt 1990 interpreted as robbed cairns but which the NMR identifies as Bronze Age house platforms surrounded by field clearance.
