Notes

The remains of a large cairn located to the south west of a small escarpment on Eyam Moor. The cairn measures 18 metres by 15 metres and stands 0.8 metres high. The centre of the cairn has been disturbed where a large quantity of the inner stonework has been removed, although much of its outer structure remains, especially on the south side, where part of the top of the monument still survives intact. Where exposed, the cairn appears to have a gritstone kerb. On the northern side of the disturbed area of the cairn is a cup marked stone of some complexity. The carved boulder stands upright and is earthfast and bears a multiplicity of small carvings. Scheduled.
