|Description ||Fine barrow surmounted by a tree on the ridge that separates the Manifold and Dove rivers. Highly prominent located on a local high point at 336m. |
Shown as both Ilam Tops and Ilamtops, but not IlamPtops, on OS map.
Scheduled monument : "Limited antiquarian investigation at the centre of the mound located a rock cut grave containing a fill of stones amongst which were a child's skull and scattered bones of an adult. At the base of the grave was a layer of charcoal, an oak timber and an ox skull. Elsewhere in the grave were the remains of two urns, a bronze awl, bones of deer and dog, and a few flints."
