This round cairn visible from the Biggin Rd off the A515 Buxton-Ashbourne, has been much dug and a lot of the mound has gone. It covered a Neolithic single grave burial. The mound was also in use in the Bronze Age.
Thomas Bateman dug here and found a crouched skeleton in a cist made from limestone and many grave goods which included polished flint axe heads, a deer horn macehead and a small pottery flask.

The polished flint axe heads are on display in Sheffield Weston Park Museum.
