Three Bronze Age round barrows, located on Levisham Moor. The barrow mounds are steep sided and composed of earth and stones. Each measures up to 12 metres in diameter and 1.5 metres high. They lie very close together in a line running north-south. Though the barrows would have been constructed primarily for burials, it is belived that those located in prominent positions such as these would also have served as boundary markers, defining territories. The barrows lie 40 metres east of the prehistoric cross ridge dyke known as Gallows Dike (UID 63112). The features were mapped as part of the North York Moors National Park NMP. Scheduled, the barrows appear to be extant on the latest 2009 vertical photography.
