A Bronze Age cairn 5 metres in diameter and an adjacent rubble bank 0.2 metres high, situated on Barningham Moor, in the modern sheep-grazing enclosure known as Scale Knoll Allotment. The cairn is composed of sandstone rocks, 0.5 metres by 0.4 metres by 0.4 metres, and is 0.4 metres high. The rubble bank is L-shaped with a maximum width of 2 metres. The bank runs northwards from a point 2 metres west of the edge of the cairn for 43 metres, then turns and continues eastwards for a further 14 metres. It is interpreted as prehistoric in date and would have defined a field area. Scheduled.
