Notes

A large bowl barrow north of The Low farm, one of a widely-spaced line of four barrows on a spur bounded on the east by the River Manifold. The barrow survives as a roughly oval mound with maximum dimensions of 32 metres by 29 metres, and is up to 2 metres in height. No ditch is visible. It has been identified with a barrow dug into by Bateman on June 23rd 1848. He reported finding only a few pieces of charcoal.
