Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

SK 1324 6233. Carder Low. Round barrow measuring ten and a half metres in length, nine and half metres in breadth and 0.6 metres in height. It is located on a ridgetop with good visibility along the ridge within 1km and in all directions within 5km. This probable barrow is possibly site 7.55, but this is unlikely as Bateman would have described it Carder Low. The mound is at one end of a natural outcrop/knoll and hence may be fortuitous. However it is too symmetrical to fit comfortably with such an interpretation and is more likely to be a barrow. The top is slightly disturbed by a shallow pit. (1,2).
