Although the moor is covered in knee/waist high heather this Cairn is easy to spot for two reasons.
Firstly it is quite large and secondly it is right next to the track skirting Hell Bank Plantation. This is the track you take when visiting Hob Hurst’s House / Park Gate stone circle.

The Cairn is also covered in heather but its size gives its location away.
I did not spot any of the other nearby Cairns – although to be fair I wasn’t going out of my way to look for them!

Worth a quick look when passing when visiting the other sites

This site is easy to get to being between the path and the ring at Beeley Central.

There have been several suggestions as to what it could be....A cairn with a surrounding bank. A ring cairn that had a cairn built into its centre. Or a well robbed round barrow.

The cairn is around 1m high about 15m in diameter. Surrounding the cairn is a low bank, visible really only in the SW.
