Cronkston Low

Round Barrow(s)


Near Longnor. A long angular earthwork and barrow, the barrow is around 12x10m and about 1.5m high, with good sections of limestone kerbing.

The angular earthwork, shown on the O.S map, and thought by Bateman to be related to the barrow; as either protection or a running/chariot track for Bronze Age in fact part of the medieval earthworks that surrounded the 'Grange' of Cronkston and Hurdlow Town.
