Very beautiful location, an easy walk up and very easy to spot the huge cairn from the wall, the cist of the long barrow is just a little further along. The Yorkshire Archaeological Society notes on it detail that the cist contained one skeleton, the remains of a man about 5'4" tall and some cremated remains, possibly from a later date. listerinepree Posted by listerinepree

This barrow is 67 metres long. on one end of it is a superimposed round barrow with a central cist, the cist is 2 Metres long and still has half the capstone now standing upright inside it.
The barrow stands in an absolutely stunning location in a field on a sloping plateau with 3 round cairns and a ring cairn.
So good in fact i spent all day here and i didnt see a soul.
