Notes

Bronze Age bowl barrow situated 400 metres west of New King Barrow cemetery. The mound is oval in shape originally 30 metres diameter but has been disturbed by agricultural activity, including ploughing and the construction of a field boundary. A surrounding quarry ditch that has now been infilled but is about 4m wide would have made the total diameter about 38m. Past excavation during the 19th century revealed a primary inhumation, drinking cup and bone pin. Scheduled.
