Shunner Howe

Artificial Mound


This lovely knocked about barrow is a prominent horizon marker for this part of the moors.
It is approximately 34 metres in diameter and 3 metres high. There are possible traces of a kerb and ditch on the eastern quadrant.
Access to the barrow is via the steep and uneven path from the Egton road.
Look out for the lovely millstone/boundary stone on the path.
