Archerton, Newtake

Ring Cairn

The kist is situated inside the newtake on the south side of the farm buildings. It is found by walking from Postbridge up the Drift Lane to where it joins the newtake wall.

From here follow the wall west then south west untill you come to a 90 degree corner. Follow south east to a leat [probably dry]. The kist is over the wall if you look north.

This is not the kist where the archer's wrist band was found, that kist is nearer to the farm buildings on Chittaford Down. This one is so called as it is in the newtake.
