Prefered site type :- Bronze Age - Cist ? (Structure - Near destroyed )
first alternative :- Bronze Age - Cairn ?

Possible cist set in remains of low mound 4m diameter x 0.2m high (CPAT 1996).

Site located immediately adjacent to main windfarm track and in 1996 there was considerable recent disturbance from excavation of a cable trench. Since 1996 there has been substantial re-growth of vegetation and the site is no longer obvious. A few stones could be seen but it was not possible to confirm the earlier interpretation (Carter, S & Baker, L, 2000).
