Gallowsclough Cob round barrow. It was excavated in the 1960's and a primary cremation burial of a young adult male was uncovered. There were no traces of an urn or grave goods. A secondary burial of an adult skeleton was also found but it was fragmentary, presumably lost by both natural erosion and ploughing. It is a Scheduled Monument.
Round barrows are a type of burial mound, particularly used in the Bronze Age. Mounds of earth and stone were placed over a burial or cremation. A single barrow could be re-used for several later burials.
