"A mutilated cist situated amongst peat cuttings on the moderate W slope of shovel Down. Only the N endstone, 0.6m long, remains in situ on the edge of a hollow 1.1m N-S by 0.9m and 0.2m deep. An irregular slab 0.15m thick, probably the disturbed coverstone, lies propped up on the endstone. There is no trace of a covering cairn". Lethbridge diagram p.133 and photo top p.133. Butler Vol. 2. Map 37.2 (diagram Vol 5 p.201).
