Notes

A Bronze Age cairnfield and an associated field system located on gently sloping ground on Corney Fell 620 metres south east of Lambground. It includes a group of 13 clearance cairns and three short lengths of stone bank. The cairns are dicided into two groups separated by a small boggy area, and measure between 2.1 metres in diameter to 6.1 metres long and 3.4 metres wide and up to 0.5 metres high. An alignments of five cairns on the eastern edge of the monument is interpreted as representing the line of an old field boundary in which sporadic patches of stone clearance were piled against a fence of hedge. Immediately to the west of this boundary is a relatively stone free, flat, well-drained, 'D' - shaped plot of land surrounded by cairns. This plot is interpreted as a prehistoric field which was cleared of stone in order to render the ground suitable for agricultural cultivation. Scheduled.
