The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


A circular pile of stones 4.5m. in diameter and 0.7m. high. The perimeter is demarcated by an apparently deliberately constructed ring of stones, none of which is earth-fast. Although the lower part of the cairn is slightly overgrown the most part is quite clear of any growth. This cairn may have a prehistoric origin but the impression is that of a collection for some recent purpose.
