Brund Low

Round Barrow(s)


Brund Low is a corkin' barrow, around 40m in diameter and possibly 1.8m in height.

One of a handful of barrows situated around the Upper Manifold Valley. Although Brund Low doesn't occupy any of the local high ground like its neighbours. Instead it appears to mirror the almost 'barrow-shaped' lump of Sheen Hill, coupla hundred yards away to the NE.

Excavated by Carrington 1851 and Sheldon 1894.
A small cairn within the mound was found to be covering a small pit containing a human cremation. Flint scrapers, human bone and bronze artefacts were also recovered.
Carrington also found 2 small stones each with a single cup mark. (Stored: Sheffield's Weston Park Museum.)
