A cairnfield composed of between five and eight small cairns and an enclosing bank. It is situated on Barningham Moor, in the modern sheep-grazing enclosure known as Scale Knoll Allotment. The cairnfield occupies a level area south of the road from Barningham to East Hope, just east of Woodclose Gill. The cairnfield covers an area 80 metres by 73 metres and is enclosed on its southern and western sides by a slight bank, which incorporates two of the cairns. The cairns are predominantly 4 metres and 5 metres in diameter and 0.4 metres high. Scheduled.
