Full Description

The cist of a small barrow near Taddington was accidentally opened in 1845. It contained an extended human skeleton which had the upper stones of two beehive querns at its head and feet. (1). [SK 15287049] Cist and Querns found. (3). No visible remains. (4). May be Romano-British, in view of the querns. (5). Listed as a doubtful Anglo-Saxon site. (6). Possibly Anglo-Saxon, but probably Roman cist burial. In 1988, inspection of the location given on the OS map of 1955 failed to find the site. Their source of information is unknown and the account given by Bateman is too vague for it to be possible to identify where this site was. There are no extant sites that apply to this account and the barrow is assumed lost or destroyed. (9).
