Notes

A Bronze Age cairnfield located a short distance west of a rock outcrop on Little Bumper Piece. The cairnfield includes 15 small mounds or cairns and a small lynchet. The cairns measure between 1 and 2 metres in diameter and stand up to 0.3 metres high. They may have been incorporated within linear enclosures that defined cultivation plots. The north west limit of the cairnfield is marked by a long straight lynchet which is believed to represent a post medieval boundary. Scheduled.
