Notes: Turner D12. Dixon #7. Bar Rep. 19. Butler Langcombe Brook 1 (Cist 1) Vol. 3. Map 50.3 (pp.148-54 general plan of Langcombe Brook cairns p.151, diagram of Deadmans Bottom cists p.149). Grinsell SHAUGH PRIOR 8. "Cairn consists of a stony mound, c 6.1m in diameter and c 0.5m high, contained by granite slabs some upright some fallen. The southern quadrant of the cairn has been disturbed. The remains of a very fine cist, box dimensions c. 0.8 x 0.7m internally, survives at its centre." One side slab and the cover-stone of the cist are missing although both could be slabs nearby. The cover-stone may be the large slab which lies to the south.
