On a cold and wet day I decided to take a photo of this cairn and cist, but could I find it? Could I hell! Considering it's not to far from Roundy Park Cairn and cist. There's nothing unusual itself about the site, except that when it was excavated there was charcoal and an archers wrist gaurd made of slate found within.
I agree with akasha (10 March 2004) about "ritual litter" When I visited the barrow I was preceeded by a couple of "new Agers" who were coming down the path as I was going up. Nothing wrong with that you say, as I entered the barrow I was confronted by billowing smoke and I could hardly see a thing. These bloody awful people had only lit half-a-dozen (birthday cake) candles and left a votive offering of a dog biscuit. Ruined my day!
