Notes

A small heather-covered mound interpreted as a barrow or cairn of prehistoric date is visible as an earthwork on the eastern side of Cheriton Ridge overlooking Hoaroak Water. It measures 8m in diameter and a maximum of 1.6m high. The monument diplays slight evidence of robbing and there is a slight spread of material about 2m down the slope.
