Monument record MDR6901 - Spoil heap, Hathersage Moor

Type and Period (4)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

Cairn, identified as quarry spoil. The standing stone may be fortuitous as there are a number of other outcropping rocks adjacent. (1) A large mound recorded by Perrett at SK 2462 8112 is actually spoil from an adjacent quarry, and not a barrow as initially suspected. (5)
