Great Crag prehistoric cairnfield and associated field system. The cairnfield includes 13 circular and oval-shaped clearance cairns. The field system consists of a D-shaped enclosure, containing a single cairn. South of the enclosure, a length of wall or bank, linked to the south-west wall of the enclosure, bounds an area devoid of cairns which may originally have been a field plot. Scheduled.
