The kist in Joan Ford's Newtake is in very good condition with all four side stones standing and the capstone resting on the south east side.The cairn is surounded by a small kerb that has been cut to the north edge by the newtake wall.There is another cairn that lies to the west along the wall that has been cut in half by the wall with stones on both sides.It is to the east side of a gate with one of the stones acting as the gate post and another used in the wall.The newtake lies to the south east of Royal Hill.
