Noon Hill

What is Noon Hill?

Noon Hill is a Bronze Age round cairn, or burial mound, located on Rivington Moor, north of Bolton.

The cairn was excavated twice by Bolton and District Archaeology Society (now Bolton Archaeology and Egyptology Society), first in 1958 and secondly in 1963/64.

It was first given scheduled ancient monument status in June 1959 following the societies excavations the previous year.

Here you can find the various documents and photographs relating to these excavations. The original documents are now located in the archives at Bolton Library and Museum Service along with the archaeological material excavated by the society. The material was donated to the museum in 2012 after nearly 60 years on loan and display there.
