Middleton Moor

Platform Cairn


Classed as a 'Platformed Bowl Barrow' rather than a 'Platform Cairn'.
Perched on the quarry cliff tops with corkin' views all round.
The barrow is in excellent nick compared to the others close by....stands about 3m high...platform around 25x26m in diameter with the barrow about 19x15m. A bit of damage to the northern side where a stone wall looked to have crossed the platform.

A footpath leads to the top of the hill starting at Arm Lees Farm (SK262553) then on to Moor Edge Farm. From here follow the path above the quarries.
A bit of a long way round but the quarries and dis-used mine shafts on the moor make a shorter route impossible.
