Grinsell: LYDFORD 34
Exist: Yes
Record: Unique
Dimensions (m): c.10.0
Notes: Possible cairn but thought to have been the remains of a collapsed house similar to Stat's House a few metres to the north. The mound has been much disturbed by the construction of a shelter in its centre. This is a trapezoidal structure, 1.2m wide at its northwestern end, 1.7m wide at its northeastern end and 3.1m long. The coursed walls are 1.1m wide and 0.6m high. The slab inside the shelter represents tumble from this structure rather than part of a cist as suggested by Grinsell.
