|Description ||Blue Boar Farm Barrow, Rainow, near Macclesfield, Cheshire GR: SJ970763
This scheduled conical mound stands in a field opposite Blue Boar Farm and was first mentioned in the 19th century. Standing on a naturally level platform on the ridge top, this tumulus was originally around 20m in diameter but because of ploughing it is now closer to 31m by 26m. It was excavated in 1972, but sadly there are no records as to what, if anything, was found.
| I am advised by the landowners Mr and Mrs G Cooper, that the 1972 excavations were interupted by English Heritage.|
