Crackendale Pasture

Round Barrow(s)


Situated on the high point of Crackendale Pasture is this odd little barrow that has previously been described, by Bateman, as lobated and, by J. Barnatt and the NMR, amorphic and badly disturbed.

On the ground it looks pretty much the same as any other Peak barrow except for the three spokes or limbs that protrude from it. A square set stone as also been set on the barrow for some reason.

Fine views towards Fin Cop and Longstone Edge.
