HOB HURSTS HOUSE

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age round cairn cum saucer barrow of unusual rectangular form, with an oblong cist which contained cremated human remains: it is situated on Harland Edge, Baslow moor. It comprises a rectangular (roughly square) gritsone cairn with a central cist, the mound has a dry stone retaining wall; surrounding this is a rock cut ditch and low outer bank. On the north side the bank was damaged in the past by a packhorse track. The ditch may possibly be a later feature resulting from quarrying for stone. The site is in the care of English Heritage.
