A cairnfield in Honley Old Wood, 280 metres north west of The Woodlands. It occupies the edge of a plateau and is bounded on its north side by the gritstone escarpment. The cairnfield is composed of approximately 17 cairns, between 2.5 metres and 8 metres in diameter and up to 1 metre high. Several of the larger cairns have been robbed for stone, leaving crescent-shaped stone banks. Most of the undisturbed cairns are subcircular, but two are more elongated and may have formed part of stone banks. Two rubble banks lie at an angle to each other near the southern edge of the cairnfield. These are typically 3 metres wide and 0.3 metres high. North of the rubble banks, at the south side of the main group of cairns, is a shallow circular hollow about 9 metres in diameter which may be a hut circle. Scheduled.
