Round cairn north-east of Middle House (Newbrough and Fourstones)
The remains of a prehistoric round cairn survive as an earthwork north-east of Middle House. The cairn is made of earth and stone and measures 13m in diameter and 0.5m high. The top of the cairn has been flattened, possibly due to an unrecorded excavation in the 19th century. Two other cairns were recorded nearby in the 19th century. An alternative suggestion for this earthwork is that this may be a post-medieval stack stand. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
