Fieldnotes

There are 5 barrows along the pastures from the fort at Ball Cross to Rowsley; 4 on the pastue and 1 in forestry land.
They're not overly impressive but not bad for Peak Barrows on improved land. Three barrows are now fenced off and because of that very overgrown.
Nothing special but it's a plasant walk with good views across to Beeley Moor.
