Eyam Moor Barrow


Eyam Moor Barrow (Cairn(s)) by MartinRS The remains of Eyam Moor cairn is just a few metres to the north of Wet Withens stone circle. The cairn was partially destroyed by workmen building the turnpike road to Hathersage in 1759. In 'Blacks Guide To Derbyshire 1881' the Eyam Moor Barrow is described as being 90ft in diameter and 35ft high. It is in a poor state of preservation but, being more visible is a useful navigation aid for anyone visiting the nearby stone circle.
