MONUMENT NO. 65877

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 consists of an earth and stone mound measuring 12 metres in diameter and up to 1 metre high. There is a hollow in the centre, caused by a partial excavation carried out in 1949. This uncovered two cremations and revealed the barrow to have been constructed as a mound of stone on a clay platform, sealed by a clay dome. Scheduled.
