Failed visit 24.8.12

North West of Twyn Cae-Hugh Barrow – on open moorland.

I couldn’t spot this cairn as the terrain in undulating moorland which has large areas covered in ferns.
There were several possibilities for the cairn but they all turned out to be natural as I could find no trace of the cist.
No doubt a winter visit would make things easier?

COFLEIN states:
‘A turf covered stony mound measuring 15m in diameter and 0.8m high. A cist has been exposed at its centre. The capstone lies a few metres to the north’.
