Notes: Butler Map 55.7 (diagram Vol. 5. p.180). Grinsell CORNWOOD 8 (Stinger's Hill). "A cist 1.20m. by 0.60m. with a close set retaining kerb circle 4.0m. in diameter is situated on Stinger's Hill opposite Erme Pound". Lethbridge Stingers Hill cist p.73. diagram p.71. The NMR gives SX63376494 as the grid reference - this error is replicated in HER entry 28468 . The present author could not find a cist there. As PMD points out that is the location of Grinsell's CORNWOOD 9 cairn and not CORNWOOD 8.
