Callis Wold Barrow Cemetery

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


On my first visit here I failed dismally to find any of the barrows, second time round I got hold of the OS map beforehand and it still took me a while to find them!

Take the road from Pocklington to Millington then continue until it splits into two (both roads join the A166 a mile or so further on). This triangle of land contains 3 remaining barrows of an original 18 of the Callis Wold group, 2 are badly ploughed down, but the northern one with it’s nearby mystery earthworks is well preserved. Continue on to the A166 and turn left, there are several further barrows beside the road, but take care – car drivers and motorcyclists treat this road like a racetrack…
