NH76SW 4 7187 6113.
This is a long grass-covered mound with rounded ends, resembling a long cairn in some respects, but which Miss Henshall considers more likely to be natural than artificial.
It measures 264' long NE-SW, by 95' wide, and stands to average height of 12' although NE end is a little higher.
