NC50NE 34 573 056.
(Area: NC 573 056) A mound about 27ft in diameter, which seems to have been excavated lies about 250 yards SE of the summit of the Ord.
There are a number of field clearance heaps in the area indicated, mostly associated with run-rig, and some probably contemporary with the earlier settlement and field system (See NC50NE 13). This particular mound was not located.
Visited by OS (N K B) 21 July 1976.
