To the west of the A535. A short distance north of the famous Jodrell Bank.
As Posties photos show, the fields where the barrows lie are undulating and the ploughed down barrows are not easy to spot - particularly on a drive-by.
The A535 is a busy road and parking is tricky.
E.H. state the 3 barrows are between 0.75m and 1m high x 35m in diameter. The barrows have been carbon dated to c1900BC. The cremated remains of a young woman was discovered within a leather container when one of the barrows was excavated in the 1970s.
