Full Description

There was a barrow excavated by Bateman in 1843 that was thought by Marsden to be situated at SK 2079 5752. (1) This mound is actually a mineral heap as indicated by erosion, exposing mineralized material. The central hollow indicates the site of a probable shaft. J Barnatt believes that the barrow mentioned by Marsden is actually further to the northwest (see SMR 920). (2)
