Along a very narrow lane to the east of the village of Warslow – running parallel to the B5054.

The O/S map shows ‘Tumulus’ although another site which E.H. have nothing to report.

We parked near a farm and a pair of dogs started to bark non stop.
There is no public right of way into the field and with the dogs barking I didn’t hang around too long.

If the Tumulus is still here it must now be very low as I was unable to spot anything ‘Barrow like’.

The Tumulus marked on the OS at SK0944 5881 is called "The Cops". The barrow has a field boundary wall running over the top of it and it is completely destroyed on one side of the wall but fairly intact on the other side.

Pastscape entry for it is at

The portal has "Warslow Bowl Barrow" located at SK0907 5837.
