Hangman's Barrow



Details of Barrow on Pastscape

[SW 6733 3665] Hangman's Barrow [L.B.] (1) Two standing stones on the hill called Hayman's Barrow. (2) Hangman's Barrow is a 3.0m high cairn. Published 1:2500 survey correct. It is not possible to identify two individual standing stones in an area such as this which is littered with granite boulders. Pevsner's information possibly incorrect or a mis-identification of the place name. (3) Hangman's Barrow is recorded by Thomas as being 95ft in diameter, the removal of many of the stones having revealed an inner wall of large stones which appeared to surround the cairn centre within 10ft of its outer edge.
