Site Description

A centrally depressed round cairn, 14m in diameter and 2.0m high.

Remains of a burial cairn, probably dating to the Bronze Age, within open moorland on the leading edge of a west-facing terrace of Cefn Mawr. The grass and reed covered stone built cairn is circular on plan and measures about 14.5m in diameter and up to 2m in height. The cairn has been disturbed in the past, with a hollow visible in its centre.
