Long Barrow


Laying in a field behind Eldon quarry slag heaps and at the bottom of what must have been the once impressive.... and soon to be no more Eldon Hill.

The long barrow is orientated ENE/WSW and is around 50x25m and over 1m high in places. A round barrow is superimposed on the eastern end.
It's still well worth a look.

Only a short walk across a field off the B6061 Castleton - Sparrowpit, there's room for a car on the roadside.
