|Surveying on High Brae
A team of IAG colleagues completed a survey of a cairn field on High Brae (on the eastern slopes of Ingleborough).
Some 22 cairns were identified and recorded, the vast majority with some sandstone showing amonst the limestone. Further investigation will be needed to decide whether these are simply clearance cairns, or have some greater importance. A formal report will appear later in the year.
An investigation is also taking place about possible alignment between the cairn field and the mid-summer sunrise.
