Description

The monument comprises the remains of a burial cairn of Later Neolithic or Bronze Age date surviving as a grassed-over stony mound. The cairn lies on the ridge of Corston Hill at around 320m OD commanding extensive views in all directions except to the E, where the summit of Corston Hill blocks the view. The cairn is represented by a grassy mound some 15m E-W by 17.5m and approximately 1.6m high. It is surmounted by a modern cairn.

The cairn represents a burial monument of the Later Neolithic and Bronze Age and is likely to have acted as a focus for ritual activity after its initial construction and use. The area to be scheduled encompasses the cairn and an area around it in which traces of associated ritual activity may be expected to survive. It is circular with a diameter of 40m as marked in red on the accompanying map.
