Bank Top Round Barrow(s)


Add fieldnotes Add fieldnotes
The Bank Top Neolithic oval barrow is located below the crest of a local high point and orientated east-west. A little over 13m in length and maybe 5m wide the barrow is very low although gains in height towards its western end, which is helped by the fact that its eastern end is down slope.
Just over Haven Hill from Wigber Low which lies to the west.
No recorded excavations and with a drystone wall built over it not very photogenic.

Standing 60m north of the Bank Top oval barrow is a Bronze Age round barrow, again, like its older neighbour the mound is not that impressive. Some 12m in diameter and below 1m in height a drystone wall cuts across this barrow too. stubob Posted by stubob
