Round Barrow(s)


There are two barrows - one low and spread out and another more impressive hillock in the adjacent field. The barrows lie very close to a confluence of rivers - the Ribble, the Calder and the Hodder. This is surely the reason for these mounds location. The Ribble is associated with the river goddess Belisma and Calderstones, the name of an ex-mental hospital about a mile away, suggests that there was may have been more sites in this area.
