A fleeting visit to the southern of the two cairns (30.8.2011) on the way from Spurrell's Cross stone row to another row at Glasscombe Corner. The cairn is a very large size, damaged by the construction of the now-dismantled tramway. The cairn is in use today as a lunch spot, so we don't linger. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Two cairns stand on the top of the hill, around one hundred metres apart. They can be reached easily, if the old Redlake Railway line is followed from the foot of Western Beacon for about three kilometres. The cairns are on the right side of the track. Lubin Posted by Lubin
