Another ‘Tumulus’ marked on the O/S map but again nothing to see on the ground and another ‘Tumulus’ on which E.H. have nothing to report.

There is a public right of way via the track leading to Cales Farm which is a little further down the road from Arbor Low.

A farmer passed me in his tractor as I was walking down the farm track but he didn't stop.

Very pretty countryside though so not an entirely wasted trip.

Ploughed out round barrow, has now disappeared. There was a burial and associated finds here. From Pastscape:

A barrow about half a mile east of Arbor Low [The published mound is 3/4 mile N.E.] was opened in May 1824 when part of a skeleton and a broken urn about 6 ins. in diameter, with calcined bones, were found. The burial had been previously disturbed by workman.

[1966 field report:] This barrow has been ploughed/over, max. height 0.4 m Published survey (25") revised.

NB: The field boundary shown on the 2008 1/25000 running along the SE side of the barrow to the SW is no longer there (see also Google Earth, which shows no barrow or field boundary).
