Approached from the south (25.4.2010), there are a couple of mounds here - the smaller is one of the neatly constructed drystone grouse butts that dot the moors, the second (next to a bridleway sign) is this huge round barrow, 35m across and sporting the usual evidence of excavation on its top. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
