|As with many of the barrows in this area of the Peak, Larks Low has been somewhat rattled by the plough.
Today the barrow measures approx. 12 x 9m in diameter, and stands to a height of 50-75cm. A rock cut grave covered by a limestone slab held several cremations and a inhumation.
Animal bones, a small burial urn, quartz pebbles and a bronze pin/point were also recovered.
A nice enough little barrow tucked away in a very quiet corner of the Peak, 800m walk through the dry (most of the year) wooded limestone valley of Rusden.
