Seamer Beacon
Seamer Beacon
The tree covered hill on Seamer Moor called Seamer Beacon is a natural hill the western slopes of which has three round barrows of a type known as a bowl barrow. The summit barrow was flattened in the 19th century when a folly known as Baron Albert's Tower was erected on it. Excavations in 1925 also revealed a v-shaped ditch around the hill which was thought to be part of a Roman signal tower.
