Monument Number 311971

Hob Uid: 311971
Location :
Derbyshire
Derbyshire Dales
Froggatt, Baslow and Bubnell
Grid Ref : SK2501076800
Summary : The four possible Bronze Age barrows or cairns, these are noticeably larger than the nearby clearance cairns. They are built of more substantial boulders with a certain degree of structure. The largest barrow is 14 m in diameter but badly mutilated. Two of the other barrows survive to a diameter of around 8m despite having been heavily disturbed. 12m The fourth barrow is an oval mound measuring 9m by 7m. They are possibly associated with the near by stone circle at (see SK 27 NW 38). Scheduled.
More information : [Area SK 25037677] Several barrows north east and south of the stone
circle [SK 27 NW ] on Froggatt Edge. Noted by F.L. Preston 14.4.1952.

18 mounds centred at SK 2496 7672, varying in size from 2.0m - 14.0m
in diameter and 0.3m - 1.2m in height. Three of the mounds are large
and well constructed (the one at SK 2493 7664 being very badly
mutilated) and are probably burial cairns. The rest are presumably
stone clearance heaps, though no definite evidence of field systems
or occupation was seen. (2)

SK 2493 7664 (FCE); SK 2501 7680 (FCE); SK 2502 7684 (FCE); SK 2497
7677 (FCE) four possible barrows to the north of the Stoke Flat
field system, referred to as `c', `d', `e' and `f' respectively in
the present survey report. Three of these barrows are referred to by
Authority 2. (The remainder of the mounds noted by Authorites 1 and
2 appear to be clearance cairns associated with the field system, and
are henceforth recorded as part of SK 27 NW 130).

The four possible barrows are noticeably larger than the nearby
clearance cairns; they are built of more substantial boulders with a
certain degree of structure, indicating that these are deliberate
features rather than the by-product of agricultural activity. This is
supported by their proximity to the stone circle at SK 2496 7679 (see
NMR no SK 27 NW 38).

Barrow `c' is the largest of the group measuring 14 m in diameter,
however it is also the most mutilated. The foundations of a cross-
wise wall which overlie the barrow probably represent the remains of
a later sheepfold. Barrows `d' and `e', which lie to the NE of the
stone circle, both survive to a diameter of around 8 m despite having
been heavily disturbed. 12 m SE of the circle is an oval mound
measuring 9 m by 7 m; within it the foundations of stone walling are
visible, but these perhaps represent a re-use of the feature.

The above description is summarised from a detailed level 3 RCHME
1:1000 scale survey conducted in June 1987. The results of the survey
are held in the NMR archive. (1)
