Notes

A prehistoric cairnfield located on a bluff of moorland on the western side of Eyam Moor. The monument comprises a series of well-preserved cairns of medium and small stones gathered in prehistoric times as a result of agricultural land clearance. There are up to ten small cairns ranging from about 1.5 metres to 4 metres in diameter, some of which are irregular in shape. Most of the cairns are complete. The size and location of the cairns, together with indications of linear clearance, indicates that they are the remains of an agricultural settlement and land clearance dating to the Bronze Age. Scheduled.
