Notes

A Neolithic long barrow, listed by Grinsell as Durrington 24. The barrow, surveyed in the 1980s by RCHME, is situated on the slopes of Durrington Down, among the buildings and grounds of Larkhill Camp. The mound is 45 metres long and 16 metres wide, and shows some damage from ploughing and military activity. The mound is orientated southeast-northwest, and only the flanking ditch on the north side remains visible. There is no record of an excavation. The barrow currently lies just outside the boundary of Stonehenge World Heritage Site.
