Ancient Monuments Around Burghwallis

We mentioned that the Neighbourhood Plan working group were preparing a map showing where all the monuments and relics are to be found. Ironically the process to dig up the information and cross reference it took about the same time as the original finds, but we digress. There are two lists, one compiled by  English Heritage ‘Pastscape”and the other in the Schedule of Monuments and Relics. There is an overlap where some monuments end with entries in both categories and some in just one. The end result is there are a total of 31 known items scattered around the parish.

Quite a surprising total to most people when asked, who are completely unaware that we are plonked down on a treasure trove of ancient history.

The map of their locations can be seen here If you click on the image of the map it will grown larger.
