Over Low



Scrip Low

A second round barrow, Scrip Low, lay to the East of Over Low due South of Slade Hollow much nearer to Stanton village. In fact the public footpath from Stanton towards Over Low crosses the site of Scrip Low at SK1225 4609.

Scrip Low was opened by Carrington in 1850. An interment of calcined bones, fragments of burnt bone, a broken flint implement and two small pieces of plain earthenware were found.

On older O.S. maps Over Low and Scrip Low both appear labelled by name.

However, by the 1950s Scrip Low had been ploughed down and spread. It was descheduled in 1992.
