Wheeldale Howe

Artificial Mound


This is an example of a fairly typical moorland barrow. It is about 36 metres in diameter and is about 2 metres high.
It is one of a number of barrows and monuments that lays beside the route of the 40 mile Lyke Wake Walk running from Osmotherly to Ravenscar. To me this implies that this route is probably an an extremely ancient trackway.
