Musden Low

Round Barrow(s)


Just north of the junction of the A52 and the A523 359 metres up hill is the big barrow known as Musden low, it's the biggest of three barrows on top of the hill but also the most destroyed, a massive section of it is gone. Two standing stones are on the moor at the bottom of the hill one has been used as a gatepost at one time but are now stranded on their own in the middle of the field and arent ancient.
From on the hilltop there are marvelous views to the southwest Calton barrow can be seen,to the northwest Waterfall low , to the northeast the entrance to Dovedale ,and to the east and south the stafford plaines
