Nearest Postcode


The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


Initially recorded as the possible site of a Bronze Age round barrow, this has probably been confused with Winterbourne Stoke 29 (Monument Number 219519). A small circle was marked on a 6inch map of Salisbury Plain by O G S Crawford, with the annotation "No 41?" implying it was the approximate location of Colt Hoare's Barrow 41 (Winterbourne Stoke 29). No trace of a barrow has been observed either on the ground or on aerial photographs at this location, which falls within the area of a First World War military camp (Monument Number 1362709). It appears the location of the barrow was misrepresented on Crawford's map. The area was surveyed by English Heritage in March 2010 as part of the Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project.
