Full Description

Barrow 1m high, 7.5m N-S and c10m E-W. Seems to be made of stone close to the surface. Flat topped with a slight depression in the top at W end. [1] A large cairn lies on Great Hill, overlooking Chetsford Water and close to the Exford-Porlock road, at SS 84759 42441. It comprises a circular, heather covered mound 8m in diameter and a maximum of 1m high on its N side. A central depression 5m long and 1.5m wide is the result of robbing, possibly for stone for the nearby enclosure hedge bank. The cairn was surveyed using GPS as part of the RCHME's East Exmoor project [2]
