|Description ||A well preserved cairn on the western flank of Kinder Scout, above the William Clough approach to the mountain plateau. I can't find any mention of this cairn on the map, nor any history relating to it.
Does anyone know if its provenance? It could be a field clearance cairn, but it has a prominent position with wonderful views that makes me think it is symbolic structure.
| What a gorgeous photo!|
| Indeed it is - though given there is no cairn marked on the map, and narrow, conical shape (without a low broad circular base (at least on the apparent basis on this pic) I am tempted to think this is a modern walkers' cairn.|
