A limestone and rubble cairn measuring 17-18 metres in diameter and less than a metre tall which stands at the foot of Beacon Hill with Great Asby Scar just beyond to the east. These hills are of course the same ones that overlook Gamelands circle a mile and a quarter to the southeast. It's just possible that there is a sightline between these two sites, if anybody is passing Broadfell it might be worth checking it out (I didn't realise until checking the map much later).
