The Rainbarrows

Round Barrow(s)


Details of the barrows on Pastscape

Three Bronze Age bowl barrows on Duddle Heath. The barrows are between 17m and 25m in diameter and 1.25m-1.6m high. The two most northerly barrows have a hollow in the centre. This possibly marks the sot of the excavations in 1887. This found a cremation burial and three bucket urns containing cremations. The southern most barrow also has a hollow but this probably marks the site of a military observation post. Remains of ditches are visible at various points 2m wide and 0.25m deep. Scheduled.
