Artist's Description

Super Large View

Beamsley Beacon cairn forms an impressive mound, twelve metres in diameter and over two metres high, set at the beginning of a long broad ridge which heads towards the north-east. It commands panoramic views in practically every direction, even as far as Pendle Hill in Lancashire, whose distinctive long sloping profile dominates the south-western horizon.

From the size, shape and position of Beamsley Beacon cairn it is thought to date from the 2nd millennium BC and to have been constructed during the Bronze Age as a funerary structure. It may contain later burials, in common with other cairns of this date in the area.
