Full Description

ABNEY MOOR, ?ROUND BARROW OR NATURAL Barrow on Abney Moor, located by Mr. A. Miller [Hunter Arch. Soc.] in 1955, Diameter. 6.1M [20ft] height 0.3M [1ft.]. It may be one of the barrows in SK 17 NE 1 / 48 (1) SK 18587949 Possible barrow. (2) Not located; the indicated area has been dragged, the A.P. marking was not identified. (3) The site identified by Miller is probably that at SK 187 792. This low amorphous mound of c.5.5.M diameter is almost certainly natural. The site identified from an AP [at SK 1858 7949] is a shallow hollow filled with reeds and again is natural. There is now no sign of the postulated disturbance of this area of the moor. There is no good evidence that the site dug by Pennington [SK 17 NE 1/ SMR no.3] was in this vicinity. (6)
