Apronful of Stones (Bradfield) (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

I searched for this one-time 'vast carnedde' for about half an hour a few days before Christmas 2006. Even though heather had been burnt, I didn't find anything conclusive. A few small stones and some lumpy turf which looked to be covering a few clumped stones. Posted by forestal

Bar Dyke Ring (Cairn(s)) — Folklore

There is a legend of a great battle being fought on Broomhead Moor. The nearby Canyard Hills is said by some to mean "The Hills Of The Soldiers" There is also a valley near here called Dwarriden. Taken to mean "The Valley Of The Dwarves". With the legend of the battle in mind, it could make sense of the Bar Dyke. Posted by Ficklefinger

Bar Dyke Ring (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

I believe there used to be another cairn, a little further up the path called "Dukes Road" .I think it was called "Apron Full Of Stones". Posted by Ficklefinger

Although quite large 27m across it's very hard to find the rubble ring of this robbed cairn...lost amongst the heather in summer. stubob Posted by stubob
