Full Description

During a survey of the limekiln complex at Peak Forest a low symmetrical mound of small diameter was identified lying at some distance from the nearest quarry or kiln. It is sited on the crest of a low ridgetop and is probably a previously unrecognised barrow. It is most probably of prehistoric date, although an Anglian date cannot be discounted. (1)
