 Altitude 365m

 Record Name Reeth Low Moor. Historic Landscapes. 19m diameter Denuded Round Cairn on Cringley Bottom
 Record Description NY99846 00233 or 399846 500233. RTH 010 on Survey Maps below. Round cairn 19m diameter located on open moorland some 200m north of the stone wall of the enclosed Pastures above Barney Beck. This large round cairn has been severely reduced by quarrying and has supplied much stone for the nearby dry stone walls. However a sufficient remnant of the stone core of this cairn survives to define the minimal extent of a cairn once at least 19m diameter. This cairn is the largest of a substantial number of stone cairns located on the wide moorland terrace below Cringley Hill. The two maps below are extracts from the SWALB EDM survey of prehistoric monuments of Reeth Low Moor with later amendments following additional fieldwork.
 Dimensions Remnant of stone round cairn 19m diameter
