Round barrow on Grindstone Law (Whittington)

An earth and stone mound stands on the south side of Grindstone Law camp. It was excavated in 1860 and found to contain a stone-lined grave with two burials in it. The mound was originally surrounded by a circle of large boulders, though none can be seen now. This was probably a Bronze Age burial site. The mound is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
