Ringham Low (Friden)

Round Barrow(s)


Almost ploughed out. Only the slightest mound remains here, in diameter it's maybe 17m or so...tricky to say.

The location of the barrow and its views over to Aleck Low, Minninglow and Kenslow Knoll are still impressive even if the barrow is not.

Thomas Bateman excavated here a coupla times in the 1840's, his old fella, William, had already given the barrow a seeing to 20yrs earlier.

The barrow turned up a number of flint tools (?) and waste flakes…Three burials from the Romano-British period were also found in the barrow….
