Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
A small circular mound is visible on aerial photographs as a slight earthwork on the northern edge of the summit of Furzehill Common, Lynton and Lynmouth. Centred at approximately SS 7339 4498, the cairn measures some 4.5 metres in diameter. It is most likely the remains of a prehistoric cairn, possibly Bronze Age. Two similar cairns are visible nearby (see MDE12865 and MDE8989). [1,2]
