Notes

Group of cairns, forming part of Mickleden Beck cairnfield. This group comprises over 30 cairns, standing up to 0.6 metres high. Traces of an associated field system survive within the group, consisting of a cross-valley wall and a series of stone banks. Pollen samples taken from beneath the cross-valley wall suggest a pre-medieval date.
