Full Description

A possible prehistoric cairn near Camp Reservoir, at SS 95771 46895, was recorded as part of the RCHME survey of the ENPA land holding on North Hill. A slight circular mound 4.2 metres in diameter and 0.25 metres high. A reasonable proportion of stone in the mound suggests a burial cairn although its proximity to camp reservoir (MSO7549) may indicate a more recent origin. [1] This record was enhanced as part of the National Record of the Historic Environment to Exmoor National Park Historic Environment Record data transfer project. [2]
