"A cist measuring 2 feet 3 inches wide at the south end, 1 foot 7 1/2 inches wide at the north and probably originally 3 feet 6 inches long. Both the coverstone and the north end stone are missing. The cist stands in a barrow which has a retaining circle, five stones of which are still erect, and one fallen. The largest stone is 3 feet 4 inches wide by 2 feet 7 inches high. The diameter of the retaining circle varies from 20 to 22 feet". Lethbridge p.69. diagram p.65 Cist 5. Butler Stalldown N. (Cairn 9) - Vol. 4. Map 54.18.9 (diagram p.62).
