|Description ||Yearnslow, Rainow, near Macclesfield, Cheshire GR: SJ96457695
This interesting bowl-shaped mound (on the horizon in the centre of the picture) is situated on a knoll at 1175ft above sea level close to Yearnslow Farm. It was reputedly opened by some Derbyshire explorers in the 19th when some Roman coins, glass beads, and bones were found in it. Today the mound which is around 19m in diameter and just over one metre in height, is covered by ruined dry-stone walls.
