Hylewood, a Danish tumulus, in Broughton Vale, but situated in the township of Pendleton, near the Irwell, 2 miles N.N.W. of Manchester. It derives its name (probably) from having been covered with trees, in the memory of people now living, and, without regard to its venerable origin, it was called the Hill Wood, corrupted to Hylewood. The learned Mr. Whitaker, has taken much pains in his history of Manchester to prove this place a Roman camp, formed for the purpose of defending the cattle in the valley which it commands; but with all deference for authority so respectable, we cannot suppose it any thing than what we have called it.
