Description

A large round barrow lying on the southern end of the western Greensand ridge. It is about 29m in diameter and 2m high. Half the monument is not in NT land, being in an adjoining garden. There is a large path along the boundary which has eroded part of the monument. There is also a clump of scrubby growth including rhododendron on the top of the barrow. The part in the garden is completely covered in rhododendron.There are a few weedy specimens of heather present under this scrubby covering and this monument must have been heather covered until relatively recently. there is probably a ditch surrounding the barrow but htis is not visible.
