Notes

A small Bronze Age cairn located on a slight ridge of gently shelving land at the south end of Eyam Moor. The monument is a well-preserved example of a small cairn of stones. It measures 2.5 metres by 3.5 metres and stands about 0.5 metres high. It is located in a relatively isolated position, away from the main prehistoric cairnfields of Eyam Moor. The cairn is complete with only a very minor depression close to its centre which does not appear to be the result of excavation. As such, the cairn retains much buried information on prehistoric funerary practice. Scheduled.
