Looking southwest over Jugger Howes round barrows.
This pair of Bronze Age round barrows stand on a high point at the northeastern end of Jugger Howe Moor. They overlook the head of the valley of Burn Howe Dale where a stream flows southwest into Jugger Howe Beck and both measure between 7-8 metres in diameter and just over a metre high with craters in their tops suggesting evidence of antiquarian investigation or pillaging for grave goods. There is another barrow also named Jugger Howe that stands about 400 metres to the southwest but this is much larger being 20 metres in diameter and a metre and a half high - is this difference in size between the two groups of barrows significant?
