Notes

A Bronze Age bowl barrow, listed by Grinsell as Wilsford 83 and located on Westfield Farm. Excavated in 1959 on behalf of the Ministry of Works by Colonel JP Haslam, who found a cremation in a large grave. The ditch surrounding the barrow contained flints which were assumed to have spread from a central mound. Bronze Age potsherds were also found. Only a very brief account of the excavation has so far been published. The barrow, although extant as a low mound in 1972, has been in arable since at least the 1940's and has been recorded as a cropmark on aerial photographs. It is visible as a cropmark of a mound surrounded by a ditch with a diameter of 20m.
