Notes: Butler Raddick Hill W.1-7 has been split into 7 records.NMR: 8 cairns, see also 440321. See Butler Vol.3 p56-7 fig 46.3 - group of cairns just north of enclosure C. The author visited this group of cairns on 22/07/19. It is impossible to match up these cairns with these records. Butler gave just one grid reference for the group and the HER entries do not accurately transpose on to what is actually there on the ground. The grid references used for this group of records match the location of the site in the photo as recorded with a Garmin GPS device. The assignment/match with HER records is arbitrary and/or as good a match going by cairn size as the grid references are too inaccurate to match by location.
