Easy to spot as the path up to Mam Tor goes straight past it.
The Barrow is on the left hand side as you get near the top.

A large grass covered mound which has been dug into at some point.

Great views.

The better preserved of the two barrows (although it has a large crater in the top) this one stands close to the southwest entrance to the hillfort and has some gorgeous views to the north, south and west. It could be that it formed a chain of monuments stretching westwards along Rushup Edge including Lord's Seat and Green Low. Chris Collyer Posted by Chris Collyer
