Notes

A prehistoric cairnfield located on a bluff of moorland, overlooking the Highlow Brook to the north, on Eyam Moor. The monument comprises a series of well-preserved cairns of medium and small stones gathered in prehistoric times as a result of land clearance. There are approximately nine small cairns ranging from about 2.5 metres to 4.5 metres in diameter, some of which are irregular in shape. Some of the cairns have been slightyl disturbed, others are complete. Their size and location indicates that they were the result of a small area of extended clearance beyond the main cairnfield. The cairnfield is interpreted as the remains of an area of agricultural settlement and land clearance dating to the Bronze Age. Scheduled.
