Frank Elgee describes a kerb stoned barrow here.
I'm afraid there's now nothing left of the kerb and the barrows are very low key.
However they do occur on the ancient track known as Robin Hood's Bay Road which takes in quite a number of ancient sites including the Ramsdale Stones and the Old Wife's Neck.
Strictly one for the enthusiast!
