A possible burial cairn is situated on a gentle SW-facing slope in heather moorland. It measures 9.7m in diameter by 1m in height, but spoil from a shallow excavation in its top has been cast down the SW flank of the mound, lending the whole an egg-shaped plan. The cairn lies at the SW edge of an extensive field-system comprising both prehistoric and later remains (NJ01NE 48). While most of the cairns in this field-system measure less than 5m in diameter, there are several that measure between 5m and 8.5m in diameter, and these, too, may be burial cairns.
