Whitnell Corner

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


‘Drive by’ 30.3.13

Although my O/S map showed 4 Barrows in the group, I could only spot 2 from the roadside. Both of the Barrows I could see are very prominent and easy to see.

There is no public access to the field and as I wasn’t feeling too good I contented myself for a view from the road.

Well worth keeping an eye out for when in the area.

E.H. state:
‘The monument includes two bowl barrows located on rising ground 350m NNE of Whitenell Corner. The northernmost barrow comprises of a mound 30m in diameter and 2.5m high. The southernmost barrow comprises of a mound 18m in diameter and 1m high at its highest point’.
