Details The monument includes a prehistoric cairn located in open moorland on an east and south facing slope of Dunkery Hill. It is in a prominent position with extensive views eastwards to Croydon Hill and northwards to Minehead Bay. The cairn is formed by a near-circular stone mound with a maximum diameter of 14m, and a height of approximately 1.5m from the east elevation and approximately 0.75m from the western side. There is an irregular depression at the centre of the mound which may indicate a partial excavation in antiquity.
