The remains of a stone row and cairn on Brent Fore Hill. The row is crossed by two leats, one of which is now disused. The cairn is visible as a low mound of turf-covered stones of 13.5 metres in diameter and 0.3 metres high. Photo shows 2 or 3 stones of the cairn - it is not very photogenic! Turner F23.
