Ladder Hill

Round Barrow(s)


What is it?.....barrow or stone circle?

Low grass covered rubble bank, around 13x11m in size, bank broken to the NNE & SW. With several large-ish stones on the banking.

The stone circle theory comes from a geezer named W.Andrew...who described the site as 'being a stone circle similar to the 9 ladies.' the rest of his description is a bit confusing....but he makes no mention of seeing upright stones and describes it much like it is now.

Barnatt reckons on it being a robbed cairn and the stones around the bank being kerbstones.
