I walk on Big moor a lot, well it is only 15 - 20 minutes drive from home, though this is the first time i've been up to have a look at the cist.
I took the direct route, from the track that leads to Barbrook 1 & 2 i headed down the banking through waist high bracken then over the Bar brook, there's then the climb up the other side onto the moor.
the going is quite tough this way but doable if your reasonably fit, expect achy legs after though, the grass is very long and the moor equally uneven and there's no path to speak of.

The wooden fence post in Stu's pic is still the best marker for tracking this site down.

Wonderful little cist and worth the effort needed to see it.

My gps marked it at SK 27455 75320.
