Graves Park Round Barrow. (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Of disputed antiquity, though derscribed in the Norton Park review report 2019 thus -

"Within the Park itself, there is a possible Bronze Age Barrow (ref:
00872/01 – MSY4312) listed as an ‘unditched earth mound 1.4m high. This was identified by W.A.
Timperley in an archaeological report ‘Discoveries at Oakes Park, Norton’ published in the
Derbyshire Archaeological Journal vol. 71, in 1951, where he states, “Mounds. Several have been
found some certainly barrows, long and round, others may be. One in Graves Park is probably a
Bronze Age round barrow. Another is being excavated and has been shown to cover artificially
worked rock in which there are cysts.” It is also speculated that the ‘barrow’ in Graves Park was
constructed as a ‘tree mound’, a later feature related to the eighteenth-century landscaping of
Norton Park or is a former round pillow mound (rabbit warren) associated with the early medieval
deer park. It could be any of these with an earlier burial mound being later re-used several times.
In the later twentieth century, the mound was used as a platform for a sculpture created as part of
a trail through the park. During the current landscape surveys, several long, linear boundary
features (now heavily degraded) have been discerned. The precise date for these is still to be
determined but the major one which runs close by the possible barrow also overlain by a
confirmed medieval wood and in doing so descends a very steep slope. This feature is suggested by
archaeologists to be prehistoric and possibly either Bronze Age or late Neolithic in origin".
