Notes

The site of a possible fogou, now destroyed. A feature described as a "walled cave" was discovered in 1788 about 20 yards south of Burleigh Dolts (SX 74 SW 16), towards the summit of the hill. It measures 20 feet in length, 7 or 8 feet wide, and up to 12 feet deep. Nothing was found inside and the owner of the tenement had it dug up.
