Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
SS 81687 33172. A low, moss covered, stony mound lies on the edge of a steep slope on the southeastern side of a tributary stream of the Dane's Brook. The mound is 5 metres north to south, 4.8 east to west, 0.7 metres high and has a circular hollow at the centre, 1.4 metres diameter and 0.6 metres deep, which is suggestive of either a structural feature of the monument or of robbing. This is a previously unrecorded prehistoric funerary cairn and is very similar to MSO8757, which lies 19 metres to the southwest.
