"Stone ring with an annular bank. The interior is part infilled with small stones and boulders to 0.3 meters or less below the bank top. This cairn measures 15.5 meters in diameter, with a bank 1.3 meters wide and 0.4 meters high. The interior has been dug into. Situated on a level summit."

The two entries SiteID=545 and SiteID=1472 are probably correct but the area is disturbed by tin workings and further confirmation is required that the correct features have been identified in the field (in terms of photos - visit 12 Sep 2022). Grid references not updated due to doubt about ID.
