There are alledgedly 5 cairns in this field, although i could only find two definate ones as the undergrowth and heather was far too thick on this visit.
One is a huge round cairn with lots of excavation pits the other being a long barrow which ive added as a separate site.
The round cairn is instantly recognisable the other three are less prominent, as theres lots of stones in this field and until the heather dies back a little i cant identify the other three.
Very beautiful location, an easy walk up and very easy to spot the huge cairn from the wall, the cist of the long barrow is just a little further along. The Yorkshire Archaeological Society notes on it detail that the cist contained one skeleton, the remains of a man about 5'4" tall and some cremated remains, possibly from a later date.
This barrow is 67 metres long. on one end of it is a superimposed round barrow with a central cist, the cist is 2 Metres long and still has half the capstone now standing upright inside it.
The barrow stands in an absolutely stunning location in a field on a sloping plateau with 3 round cairns and a ring cairn.
So good in fact i spent all day here and i didnt see a soul.
