SX2477 : Cairn on Ridge hill, East Moor

taken 10 years ago, near to Trebartha, Cornwall, Great Britain

Cairn on Ridge hill, East Moor
Cairn on Ridge hill, East Moor
This cairn is at the eastern end of the summit of (the appropriately named) Ridge hill, marked as a 'tumulus' on the OS map. It looks as if it could have been adapted to use as a sheep pen in more recent times. The monument's scheduling says that it is 22.7 metres in diameter and up to 1.3 metres high. Partial excavation in the nineteenth century revealed a central slab over a cremation burial, surrounded by concentric rings of slabs in the cairn's mound. In the distance are the green fields of the farmland to the northeast of the moor.
