Five cist burials (Duddo)

In 1905 some Bronze Age stone cists were discovered under a mound, together with some pots. There were reportedly seven cists found and, in the 1950s, three of them could still be seen. A few years later the site was planted with trees and the location of the remains is no longer certain.
