Monument Types

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

Description

Round barrow surviving quite well within pine woodland. It is approx 20m diameter and up to 1m high, possibly higher on the western side. The exact boundary between man-made mound and natural slope is hard to distinguish. The centre is uneven and hollowed out suggesting disturbance either by antiquarian digging or/and by old pathways. At present there appears to be no well used pathways across the monument. A large path to the west may just cut across the expected ditch although no ditch is visible from the surface.
