Full Description

[SK 24246272]: T33 This feature first appears in the archaeological record depicted on a location map of numbered 'tumuli' on Stanton Moor (1). Although no excavation report was published for this cairn, it is known that some level of excavation was undertaken by the Heathcotes, probably during the period 1934-1938 (2). The monument was not located during the investigation of Stanton Moor by the OS Archaeological Division in 1966. In a more recent assessment, T33 is listed as being 'small' with no further information and no indication of source (3). RCHME FIELD DESCRIPTION (4) From the map evidence (5,6), T33 should be 20m E of the New Park Quarry edge, the cairn was not located but may have been destroyed during quarry activities.
