Notes: Dixon #96. Grinsell HARFORD 2. According to the NMR record "noted by Hankin in July 1976, perhaps in a small cairn diameter 3.7m and height 0.3m. It is now filled in and Grinsell failed to locate it, 'it seems never to have been planned if it ever existed.'" This cist was listed by Dixon in 1952 70th Barrow Report (T.D.A Vol 84) with Dixon #96. It is not listed in prior Barrow Reports - and appears towards end of Dixon's list, so presumably discovered/reported late 40s to 1952. Not listed by Butler (area covered in Vol. 4. Map 55). Not listed in Hankin's 'An archaeological check-list for Harford'.
