In 1818 Rhodes' described a barrow which had recently been robbed and ploughed. When opened an urn, human cremation and a flint arrowhead and charcoal were found. In 1818 the cairn comprised a rubble rim of 17.5m diameter, the robbed interior had been of stone and earth.
This site has frequently been identified with SMR 5442, but this seems unlikely as the latter has had no ploughing in its vicinity, is wholey of stone, and the adjacent stone circle described by Rhodes was of the wrong dimensions to be SMR 5452
The only portion of Eyam Moor to be enclosed centres at SK233783 and the site described by Rhodes may have been located somewhere here.
