Notes

A round barrow situated in a prominent position on the southern flank of Cawthorne Banks, 410 metres south of Keldy Banks. The barrow has an earth and stone mound standing 1.5 metres high. It is round in shape and 19 metres in diameter. The mound was surrounded by a ditch up to 3 metres wide which has become infilled over the years and is no longer visible as an earthwork. The mound has been the subject of an antiquarian investigation, leaving a large hole in the centre, and the resultant spoil has spread over the flanks of the mound, obscuring its original profile. It is said that four or five urns came from this barrow. Scheduled.
