Not sure if I actually spotted the Barrow?

If I did it is now no more than a patch of rough ground.

Was that it?

These two barrows are located in a field NW of the Castlegate Lane barrow above Hay Dale.
Both are plough damaged and possibly robbed of stone for the wall that crosses the larger of the two mounds.
The eastern barrow measures about 9m and is well below a metre in height, the larger to the west maybe 13x6m and maybe 1m in height.
Neither have been excavated which seems strange as Bateman was only in the next field during in 1851 at the Castlegate Lane barrow.
