HER suggests possibly located SX 668764. Locality only as not found. There is confusing ground evidence for the presence of a cairn in this area. There are several low, possibly stoney mounds but all are rather amorphous and resemble natural features. It is not possible to determine which is the feature examined by Burnard or that described by Butler (1991 136-137). LYD 67a? Possibly described in Barrow Report 33.
