MONUMENT NO. 1330098

DESCRIPTION + /

A round barrow, one of a group situated on a ridge between Hard Dale Gill and the Derwent Valley, towards the western edge of Broxa Forest. The barrow is formed of an earth and stone mound, measuring 12 metres in diameter and up to 1.1 metre high. It formerly had a maximum diameter of 14 metres, but this has been reduced by ploughing. There is a hollow in the centre of the barrow, the result of a partial excavation carried out in 1949. This investigation revealed the remains of a cremation, and showed the barrow had been formed from a mound of stone covered by a clay dome.
