The third barrow at Upper Elkstone lies SSW of the highest point of the hill and is a small D-shaped mound. The western quadrant of the barrow has been truncated by a mining trench. Barrow mound is 11m by 9.5m and 0.5m high no visible ditch. Identified by Archaeologist John Barnatt during his 1989 survey of peakland barrows. The regular profile of the mound and its predating of the mine trench suggested to him that it was a barrow. This barrow is thought to have escaped the attentions of Messrs Bateman and Carrington.
