At just over 850m OD, this must be one of England's highest funerary monuments. Pastscape description:

Remains of a round cairn on the summit of Grasmoor. It consists of an oval-shaped mound of stones measuring 17.5m by 12.5m east-west. It measures up to 1m high on the on its downslope north side and 0.2m high on all other sides. On the monument's summit there is a fellwalker's shelter constructed from the stones which originally would have formed part of the round cairn.
