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.
Bronze Age ring cairn, still extant as an earthwork.
I have searched this area on numerous occasions and am unable to find any trace of this cairn. Perhaps if the vegetation is ever cleared it may reappear but I think it has been eroded and or trampled into the ground as the grid reference given is pretty much where the track runs

Whilst I could not find anything at the grid reference given on this website, about 80 metres along the track towards Eston Nab at Grid Reference NZ 56196 17329 is a visible Earthwork. This Earthwork is marked on the OS 1:25 000 map. So is this the Ring Cairn and incorrect grid references on this website have been given or is it something completely different such as a possible pond barrow / cremation cemetery as suggested in Paul Browns and Graeme Chappells book Prehistoric Rock Art on the NY Moors. Anyway whatever it is I have uploaded photos of it.
