Great views again! I need to find a free day and make the effort to go up these hills not 10 miles from my house... Funnily enough I presumed there was a barrow here everytime I hurtled past on the way to the girlfriend's (now wife's) home near longnor. juamei Posted by juamei

You really should, ive kinda fallen for the place. 25 miles as the super hero flies.

It's a bit difficult to pick out from all the old mine workings, (of which there are plenty ) especially from afar. But now I know, I cant miss it.

I've been aching to walk the hills for about 8 years now, this year will be the one. I've already designated it year of the caves. ;)

BTW any neolithic barrows about that way? I know there are neolithic deposits in the caves...

The year of caves, very like it. You've plenty to go at in the Peak,

I cant say with any degree of knowledge, but I don't think so, I'm guessing Stubob would be the man to ask.
