Late Bronze Age
During the laying of drains and other services a cinerary urn was struck in the middle of January 1947. This had been covered by a low burial cairn. Part of a second cairn was revealed about 20 feet to the west and remains of cremation burials were found among its stones. A second cinerary urn was also revealed. A further four burials comprised un-urned cremated bone. A third highly disturbed cairn was identified 140 yards south-south-east of the first.
