Four barrows near Wall Mill (Haltwhistle)

In the 18th century, a group of round barrows were described near the Military Road, close to Wall Mill. One of them was partly excavated in 1757 and human bones and a pottery urn were found inside. It is not known exactly where these barrows stood, but it is possible that this is part of Four Laws Roman cemetery.
