Notes

Prehistoric cairnfield, an enclosure, and four individual cairns situated on Barningham Moor, 250 metres south east of Bragg House. The cairnfield is small comprising six cairns composed of sandstone boulder. These measure 4 metres to 5 metres in diameter and all about 0.4 metres high. The prehistoric enclosure is rubble banked, 185 metres long and 125 metres wide enclosing a small knoll known as Brown Hill. The bank is between 2 metres and 3 metres wide and typically 0.3 metres high. Three of the individual cairns are of similar dimensions as those that form the cairnfield but the fourth is larger with a diameter of about 10 metres and a height of 0.4 metres. All the cairns have been robbed for stone.
