Knowe of Crustan

Round Barrow(s)


RCAHMS NMRS record no. HY22NE 5 at HY27472897 is a turf-covered barrow of 35' diameter called the Knowe of Crustan. It sits high on a ridge and used to have a standing stone several feet tall on top of it, immediately bringing to mind the Stanerandy Tumulus not that far away. There is some damage, perhaps from the 1852 excavation whose E-W trench produced burnt bones in what is described as a "common cell". Two wartime buildings have changed its appearance somewhat. wideford Posted by wideford
