Sited on the northern side of Monsal Dale this disturbed round cairn is crossed by three field walls....more than possible it was robbed to construct them.
Nothing here really to recommend a visit although it has fine views across the dale toward Fin Cop hillfort.

There's a track leading off the Monsal Trail heading toward Brushfield Hough; the cairn is in the fields above is private land.

Bateman turned his attention to this 17x13m cairn in 1850 and found both cremations and inhumations but no dateable artefacts to go with them.
