Longman Hill Cairn
Longman Hill Cairn
An earthen 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 was investigated in 1886 an urn was discovered containing calcined bones. Another urn was found 2 years later, filled with black mould.

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.
