Notes: The author was looking for Addicombe 1 and encountered this which looks like a very dilapidated cairn that is much larger. There are no records of it. There are a number of mounds in the vicinity which are the result of the construction of the Red Lake tramway but this is quite a bit downhill from there and seems unlikely to be one of those. The Addicombe 1 cairn is around 3 metres across. This is considerably larger,more like 12 metres (estimate from memory - not a measurement). The area is covered in Butler Map 53.1
