Monument record MDR3954 - Eyam Edge, Possible Round Barrow

Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

A large, plough-spread possible barrow on Eyam Edge. Diameter 35m, Height 1.1m (8) There is lead mining activity in the area, however, which may account for this earthwork. T. Bateman and Wood both record, after Hawley's piece (5801) 'another large mound on Eyam Edge' Which could apply to either this location or to that of SMR entry 5848. (1) The mound is sited on a natural knoll which makes the estimation of it's dimensions difficult. (2) The mound lies directly on the Hucklow edge vein and further, more ephemeral, traces of ploughed over mining can be traced nearby to the east. (5)
