Full Description

NMRS Report: (19/10/2006 13:45:39)
NH95SW 55 NH9086 5220

Geophysical survey NH 9086 5220 Magnetometer and resistance survey in October 2005 located several of the upstanding cairns; the results were limited, however, by ground disturbance caused by cattle. Several of the cairns seem to have compacted surfaces surrounding and potentially linking them. One feature to the NW of the survey
area appears to be bounded by a slight ditch, possibly indicating the presence of a barrow, although later dumping could be an alternative interpretation.
