Ancient Monuments

This site aims to list every scheduled monument in the British Isles. Each monument page includes the geographic location of the monument and, where possible, Google and OS maps of the location. Where available, the official monument description is also shown.

As well as the official data, we also have user-contributed notes and photos. Over time, this is expected to build to a comprehensive user-contributed database of Britian's ancient monuments.

Bowl Barrow 380m South-West of Blore Church Blore with Swinscoe Staffordshire

Carrington's excavation of 2nd June 1849 recorded in Bateman's "Ten Years Diggings..." as being in a field called Nettles (Net Lows?). The field containing this barrow is shown on a Tithe Map of 1845 as Blore Netlow so the name Net Low would appear to apply to this barrow.
