Not marked on the O.S map, I came across this barrow in John Barnatt's Barrow Corpus. The name of the barrow got me interested as I have a few friends who consider themselves Derbyshire Tups.

Situated WNW from the village of Foolow, Tup Low is an impressive barrow of around 20m diameter and between 2-3m in height. The Corpus says that it is unexcavated and it pretty much looks undisturbed.

Two fields away to the west from the Foolow to Grindlow path.
