NF 872537. An oval corbelled cist was built in a pit cut into earlier Beaker midden deposits and covered by a low mound of sand. The crest of the mound was defined by a circle of stones laid flat to form a kerb. The cist contained one male and two female inhumations, a decorated biconical urn and a possible pendant of limestone. Beyond the kerb were two small cists, one containing a plain pot. AR.
