"A cist lies 700 yards north of Harrowthorn Plantation and a few feet west of the track from Watercombe Moorgate to Ranny Brook. Only the two side stones and the eastern end stone remain. The structure is unusual in that the southern side stone is an earth fast boulder, an approximately vertical face of which forms a side of the cist." Lethbridge p.66. diagram p.65 Ranny Brook Cist 3. Butler Coombe Brook N.E. - Vol. 3. Map 52.11. Located 200m due east up hill of the Coome Brook enclosure.
