Eyam Moor Barrow



Visited in September 2007 and Ministry of Works sign had been removed so can't be used as a waymarker to find the cairn and nearby Wet Withens. The cairn itself has been bashed about and it's difficult to figure out what it was meant to be. There is a suggestion that it may originally have been a pair of cairns that were either joined in antiquity or by more recent excavation/quarrying while another idea is that it could have been a long cairn. It measures about 28 metres by 18 metres. Chris Collyer Posted by Chris Collyer
