Cist Class: Maybe

Notes: The suggested cist, beside a length of bank and with numerous earthfast stones in visibility. The primary feature is a rectilinear slab 1.5 metres long, 1.2 metres wide and 0.1 metres thick. Its north-east corner rests upon a thin embedded stone, about 0.8 metres long and 0.1 metres high, and the slab is thus raised from the surface ... The impression gained is that, being similar to a coverstone, the large slab has been moved in the false expectation of a cist beneath.
