Cairn and enclosed cremation cemetery on Bewick Hill (Bewick)

A number of monuments can be seen at this location. A rough circular enclosure defined by a bank of earth and stones. Inside a hut circle can be seen. There is also a slight circular depression 4m in diameter filled with small stones up to the existing ground level. This is probably the remains of a damaged burial cairn.
