Gib Hill

Artificial Mound


There is a barrow or tumulus called Bunker's Hill, otherwise Gib Hill, near Youlgreave, in North Derbyshire. It is mentioned in Murray's Handbook, but the origin of the name is not given.

I notice the name in old English characters on the one-inch Ordnance map, which I suppose simply indicates that the place is marked by ancient remains. The contents of the barrow are described in Ten Years' Diggings, by Thos. Bateman.
