Description

About 14m in diameter and 0.6m high this barrow has been previously un-noticed by scheduling and earlier archaeologists. This is surprising given that at present it appears relatively obvious. It is heather covered and there is no path running up to it. This has preserved it well. On the southern side part of the barrow has been completely eroded away by long term use of a pathway. This path is eroded to about 2m deep attesting to its long usage although map evidence is lacking to date this. There may be a ditch around the barrow but this is not visible - a feature of all the barrows on Sullington Warren. Geophysical survey may elucidate whether or not ditches survive.
