Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
SS 8343 5226 Cairn. A cairn situated on a gentle north facing slope of Heather and rough grassland at about 445 Ordnance Datum overlooking Madacombe to the northwest. It is visible as a heather covered mound about 8 metres in diameter and 0.8 metres maximum height. Probing revealed a content of small stones but no kerb was evident. A slight central depression may have been caused by robbing. Found during RCHME field investigation.  The grid reference quoted in source  is incorrect. Monarch listed the site at SS 8343 4246; Somerset HER suggested the site may be at SS 8343 4226 by combining the two references. It is currently mapped at SS 8343 4246.  This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project.
