Sites and Monument Record: Walton Cists (SMR 116)

In about 1893 a number of coffins containing human remains were found by excavation in the flat-topped hillock to the S of Walton farmhouse. They were constructed of shale and stone slabs. The site was earlier noted as a barrow. The OS placed a Roman Camp here, but this was incorrect.
