|Description ||At the highest point of Harden Moor, a short distance from the 'circle' on Harden Moor is this flat topped earthwork. It is tear-drop shaped and made of rock debris very accurately. A ditch surrounds its base, this is the view from the path over a wall. |
I don't know what it is.
| Having been back to the site it becomes evident this is not alone. There are at least ten that I have found just like this, flat topped earthworks. As the local quarrymen will no doubt have them gone within a matter of a year or two catch them while you can. A few have already gone, and in dismantling them for sale it is clear they appear to be hollow structures, this can be seen using Google Earth.|

| It doesn't look prehistoric so not really of relevance to us here|
| Fair enough.|
| The answers to how these were created are still visible in the elevators, crushers and general mechanised extraction in the working quarry next door, some of the worked stones you have seen point to a likely early 19th century start but those tailings heaps are very 20th century in appearance.|
