Coldsmouth Hill ring cairn (Kilham)
This is a large Bronze Age burial cairn lying on the summit of Coldsmouth Hill. Two rings of stone enclose a horseshoe-shaped arc of stones, which surround a central stone-lined grave. Excavations in 1929 discovered some cremated bone, a flint knife and a bronze dagger in the grave. This is the northern of the two ring cairns on the top of this hill. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
