Full Description

At SK 2221 7254 is a small round mound. Probing indicates that it has a stone content. If this is a barrow, it may have undisturbed deposits. (1) A small mutilated mound on the knoll top may be the remains of a barrow, as it is well away from any recognisable mining. It measures six metres across and is c. 0.3 metres high.
