Two round barrows situated on Newton Mulgrave Moor, at the north edge of the North York Moors. The northern most barrow (NZ 76541377) has an earth and stone mound which measures 11 metres in diameter and stands 0.8 metres high. It was originally surrounded by a ditch up to 3 metres wide which has largely become filled in over the years and is now only visible as a shallow depression around the base of the mound. In the centre of the mound there is a hollow caused by excavations in the past. The second barrow lies to the south east of the first at SV 76721366. It has an earth and stone mound which measures 17 metres in diameter and stands up to 1.2 metres high. It was originally surrounded by a ditch up to 3 metres wide which has become filled in over the years and is no longer visible as an earthwork, although a slight depression can be seen around the base of the mound on the north side. In the centre of the mound there is a hollow caused by excavations in the past. Investigations by S Anderson in 1852-3 uncovered a cist burial in the centre of the mound, consisting of vertical stone slabs surrounding a cremation. Scheduled.
