Round barrow (Netherton with Biddlestone)

A large natural mound at Low Trewhitt was used by Bronze Age people to bury their dead. In 1908 the mound was excavated and three cists found. One cist had an unburnt burial, another had an urn filled with earth, and the third contained seven or eight small flints and a piece of pottery. Two of the cists contained many small pieces of charcoal and pieces of stone that had been exposed to fire.
