Notes

Two Bronze Age burial mounds on Lealholm Moor. The one to the west is a round barrow 15m in diameter and 1m high with a 10m diameter top with a second mound 0.5m high and 8m in diameter on top. There is a depression in the top of the higher mound 5m by 2.5m and 0.5m deep. The other is described as a round cairn consisting of a 4m wide earth and stone bank 0.4m high and 14m in diameter. It is possible this could be a barrow with a robbed centre. Scheduled.
