Longman Hill Cairn
Longman Hill Cairn
A barrow cairn stretching 67 metres. The Longman Hill monument is a bit peculiar; a round cairn at the wide end, separated by a ditch or dip from a tapering tail. The depression between the two sections may be an original feature but it might equally be from an unrecorded archaeological excavation, which makes the remains a bit more difficult to interpret.
The cairn is about 21 metres across, 4.3 metres high, and is made mostly of earth. The barrow stands in a visible location on the crest of a hill, and presents an easily identifiable skyline feature.
