Thomas Bateman dug this barrow in 1845; unearthing a skeleton, burnt flint artefacts, a bronze dagger and pieces of jet.

J. Barnatt's "Barrow Corpus"
B Marsden's "The Burial Mounds of Derbyshire"

The barrow measures 20m-ish in diameter and is quite low. Visible from the Tissington Trail just south of the car park by the Alsop Moor Cottages.
