Monument record MDR4188 - Possible cairn, Bamford Moor, Bamford

Type and Period (1)

  • (Bronze Age - 2350 BC? to 701 BC?)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Between a group of cairnfields at Priddock Wood South (SMR 1005) and a ring cairn some 400m to the south (SMR 1007) is a possible cairn 4.0m in diameter, overlain by a wall. This suggests that further cairns have been destroyed by wall builders, and that the ring cairn was formerly more closely associated with the cairnfield. (1) Recent opinion would assign some of the Peak cairns a medieval origin. (2)
