Hoar Edge

Cairn(s)

Miscellaneous

Three cairns to the SE of Titterstone Clee Hill, two large and one much smaller. Description from Pastscape:

Two cairns on Hoar Edge.

(A: SO 59617679) The remains of a cairn some 20.0m. in diameter and now only 0.6m. high.

(B: SO 59627684) This cairn is more complete. It is some 17.0m in diameter and some 1.6m. high. The centre has been opened, and a pile of stones at SO 59638781 probably came from the cairn.

At 'C', SO59637683, in between 'A' and 'B' is a third, smaller cairn, measuring in diameter 7.0m east to west by 6.5m north to south, with a maximum height of 0.4m. The cairn is composed of small boulders and stones. There is no evidence to show that the material came from cairn 'B'.


Two stone rings and string of beads were reported found, but these have since been "lost".
