The Three Wells round cairn is a well preserved and largely entact example of a burial monument of the Early Bronze Age. The turf covered heap of boulders making up the body of the cairn is some 8m in diameter and stands 0.3m high. Standing within 1km of an unusual pair of Bronze Age burial monuments (08113g), this site has considerable group value and forms an important element in a wider prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape.
