The NMR gives SX63376494 as the grid reference - this error is replicated in HER entry 28468. The author could not find a cist there. As PMD points out that is the location of Grinsell's CORNWOOD 9 cairn and not CORNWOOD 8. "A cist 1.20m. by 0.60m. with a close set retaining kerb circle 4.0m. in diameter is situated on Stinger's Hill opposite Erme Pound". Lethbridge Stingers Hill cist p.73. diagram p.71. Butler Map 55.7. (diagram Vol. 5. p.180). The author visited this site on 16/7/21 and the grid reference is confirmed as listed on this record.
