Notes: Doubtful. SX 59406820. The site of a possible cist lies on the lower SW flank of Eylesbarrow some 400m W of Eylesbarrow Mine.The feature is marked by a single upright slab 1.1m long 0.2m wide and 0.3m high resembling a sidestone adjacent to a second slab 1.4m long and 0.9m wide perhaps representing the coverstone.Both stones are earthfast and are surrounded by a cluster of smaller stones which could represent the remains of a cairn. The area surrounding these stones has been disturbed by later tin extraction activity and it is also possible that they are products of this activity.
