Full Description

There is a small cairn in the northern portion of the wood at c265089874433. The area is old woodland but with more modern xmas trees as well. Identification of number and extent of cairns is therefore difficult to determine at this stage. But area has been partially cleared in advance of a planning app to put 2 new houses in the northern part of the woodland. The access track has cut through part of the cairn - HAW 11/2004
