Full Description

SK 222838. Bole Hill Wood cairn, rather mutilated, but showing curb stones around outer edge. Recent opinion would assign some of the Peak cairns a medieval origin. (1) Appears on Barnatt's survey as 28;16. (2) Although located by Makepeace it was not apparent on the ground during Barnatt's survey and he concluded that it may well have been a natural feature as there are several low amorphous mounds within the area. Below these the slopes are precipitous and unlikely locations for barrows. (5)
