Notes

A linear group of ten round barrows plus three small mounds set on a similar alignment are situated on high ground with impressive vistas in every direction. The barrows lie in close-cropped moorland turf and little surface store is evident. Their average diameter is 9.6m and 0.5m high. The majority are round barrows with flat tops although one ring barrow survives. Most have been superficially disturbed.
