SK 21275671. Damaged cairn with traces of central cist. 22 paces in diameter and two feet high. No further reference. (1,2).
Barnatt identifies this barrow as 10:13. It is near the crest of a broad low ridge with good visibility to the north-east and east. There have been no excavations of this barrow, apart from a series of pits opened by robbers. (3).
Gallowlow Lane bowl barrow became a scheduled monument on the 4th September 1992. It is a roughly circular cairn situated on Brassington Moor in the south-eastern uplands of the limestone plateau of Derbyshire. The monument includes a mound measuring 21 metres by 18½ metres which survives to a height of c.0.6 metres. Originally it would have been higher but the cairn has been robbed of much of its stone, probably for wall-building in the early nineteenth century. In other respects, however, it is undisturbed and shows traces of a central limestone cist in which a burial would have been placed. The overall appearance and the presence of the cist indicate a Bronze Age date for the barrow. (4).
Site monitoring has been carried out and site does not apprear to be damaged. See report for more details. (5)
