Notes

A square barrow situated 480 metres north east of Cockmoor Hall. The barrow has a flat-topped earth and stone mound which stands up to 0.8 metres high. It is sub-square in plan with a side measuring 8 metres, and is oriented approximately north west to south east. Partial excavation in the past has left a hollow in the centre of the mound. The north western side of the mound has been distorted by animal burrowing. The mound was originally surrounded by a ditch, which is visible as a shallow depression, up to 2 metres wide and 0.3 metres deep. Scheduled.
