Bants Carn: In a wonderfully scenic location, on a hill above the site of the ancient Iron Age village, stands this Bronze Age burial mound with entrance passage and inner chamber.


The tomb measures around 8m in diameter and stands on a low, 12m diameter, platform. The entrance is 4.5m long and 1m high with no roof. It is separated from the burial chamber by a jamb. The chamber itself measures around 5m in length and 1.5m in width and height with four large capstones serving as a roof.
