Narrator Brookhead Cairn is a well-preserved cairn situated just to the east of the Down Tor Stone Row. The cairn is quite large, a little over 65 feet in diameter and up to 6-1/2 feet high in places.
According to one observer, "To the untrained, the cairn looks like a jumble of granite rocks, but further inspection shows a definite structure to it. Nearby lie the remains of two much smaller cairns."
