Yearns Low
The purpose of the stepped structure (which appears to be of recent construction) is uncertain. It stands on a Bronze Age bowl barrow - see LinkExternal link - with extensive views to Big Low and (in this direction) Ely Brow. The hollow in the centre is the result of 19th-century excavation. The barrow is unusual in Cheshire in displaying re-use during the Roman period.
