Round cairn at Hole Farm (Bellingham)

The bastle at Hole Farm partly overlies a Bronze Age round cairn. This was recognised as a cairn in 1972 when a Bronze Age stone cist was discovered in the cairn, about 2.5m north of the north wall of the bastle. No finds were discovered inside and the cist remains in its original position. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
