A small tumulus on a hill next to Cronkstone Hill and above the Hich Peak Railway, near Hurdlow, was opened by Bateman on the 21st July 1849. He found a horse's tooth, a bit of thin bronze and burnt bones in a small cist. (1) The summit of the "next hill" is at SK 1123 6649. Here there is some disturbance resembling the remains of an excavated tumulus. Surveyed at 1/2500. (2) There is no barrow at the site previously suggested, SK 1123 6649. The barrow excavated by Bateman, described as small could equally have been elsewhere on the ridge to the North and West. (3, 6)
