This cairn is in a nice spot on the top of Birch Tor , with stunning views all around. Although the cairn is not much to look at it is worth a visit for the views alone.
This is the cairn that R.H.Worth, in 1925, found some road workers taking stones away in a cart. There would have been even less of it left if it had not been for his intervention.
