The moor is around 60 hectares and contains 70 or so cairns mainly from the early bronze age. The most notable are all visble from the paths on the moor.
The Heathcotes (father & son) excavated most of the cairns and circles on the moor. They also tidied (?) some of the ones they dug, not necessarily to their original form.
