Notes

A round barrow situated on a gentle north facing slope on the north edge of the North York Moors. The barrow has a well defined earth and stone mound standing 0.8 metres high. It is round in shape and measures 19 metres in diameter. It was originally surrounded by a kerb of stones which defined the barrow and supported the mound. However, over the years many if these stones have been taken away or buried by soil slipping off the mound and none are visible now. In the centre of the mound there are several hollows caused by excavations in the past. Records state that an urn was found in the mound. Scheduled.
