Monument Types

  • ROUND BARROW (Early Bronze Age - 2350 BC to 1501 BC)
  • BARROW CEMETERY (Early Bronze Age - 2350 BC to 1501 BC)

Description

About 10m diameter and 0.3m high. Now covered in pine trees and bracken, the roots of both no doubt causing some damage, potentially severe, to this monument. It is extremely difficult to locate this barrow. There may be a ditch around it but this cannot be seen from the surface. The barrow may go into the neighbouring garden and therefore could be under increased threat though out of direct NT control.
