Round Barrow in Cheshire

According to the County Sites and Monuments Record, Knights Low Wood in the care of the National Trust on the Lyme Estate, is a barrow hot spot, home to a number of Bronze Age mounds.

This third mound may be one of three possible barrows discussed by Marriott in his Antiquities of Lyme in 1810:‘3 small tumuli, just beyond the wall which forms the partition of the calf-croft from the Knight’s Low. These are not particularly striking, yet have character enough in them to warrant the supposition that they may be composed for small barrows or sepulchres.’
