Monument Number 45895

Hob Uid: 45895
Location :
Oldham
Saddleworth
Grid Ref : SD9801007460
Summary : Bowl barrow, probably Bronze Age, surviving as a low oval earthwork. Limited excavation in 1911 and in the 1980s failed to locate grave goods or human remains.
More information : In one of the meadows near Hilltop is a large and well
defined ring mound, 15 yards in diameter and 1'6" high. Pieces
of charcoal and fragments of burnt stone were found during
excavation. (1)

SD 9801 0745. A ditchless earthen mound, 0.5m. high, answers the siting description above, but appears to be the remains of a
denuded and mutilated round barrow. It is not a ring mound.
Surveyed at 1:2500. (2)

SD 9800 0744. Bowl barrow 190m NNE of Knarr Barn. Scheduled RSM
No. 23758. The barrow survives as a slightly oval earthen mound up to
0.5m high with maximum dimensions of 18m by 17m. Further limited
excavation was undertaken in the 1980s when only the topsoil of a
single trench was removed. No finds were recorded. Despite
excavations the barrow survives reasonably well. (3)
