Eldon Hill

Round Barrow(s)


This barrow is on the summit of Eldon hill, and mutually visible with the barrows on Gautries Hill and Snels Low. Bateman found various skeletons and worked antler and bones. Later excavations found more burials accompanied by quartz pebbles, and a jet bead. More details here:
The hill has been mined for lead over the centuries, and has many dips and earthworks connected with that. Including a huge quarry now.
