A Bronze Age cairnfield located on a slight ridge within Eyam Moor. The monument comprises a series of well-preserved cairns of medium and small stones gathered as a result of land clearance. There are approximately 90 cairns ranging from about 1.5 metres to 6 metres in diameter, although several are ovoid in shape. Some of the cairns have been disturbed, probably by 19th century antiquarians, but the majority are complete. There are also traces of linear clearance banks within the cairnfield, indicating that the area was divided into field plots, probably by hedges or fences. Two probable house platfroms have also been identified, although there are likely to be others. Scheduled.
