I can find no exact grid reference for this site, so the one I give here is intended only to indicate the general area. This site has been described as "a short Bronze Age cist with an unburnt body found at Sherburn" (Co. Durham VCH, 1905, vol. 1, p. 208), the Ordnance Survey adding only "near to Sherburn Grange, a short cist with the decayed bones of a body which had been deposited on its side in the usual contracted position" (NZ34SW6, 1954).
