Notes

Two Bronze Age bowl barrows are visible on aerial photographs, one as an earthwork mound and the other as a ring ditch seen as a cropmark. Liddington 1a, as the earthwork bowl barrow has been classified, is 26m in diameter, with a height of 1.4m. The barrow is visible as a low mound surrounded by the cropmark of a ditch with a diameter of 30m. The barrow was excavated by Passmore in 1893 and revealed a primary cremation with the rim of an urn and a conical shale button in a cist below a cairn of sarsens. Immediately east of the barrow is the cropmark of a ring ditch with a diameter of 35m, which appears to be actually joined to the ditch of Liddington 1a. This, presumably ploughed out barrow, is now bisected by a modern field boundary. Running to the west of these two barrows is a linear earthwork showing as the cropmark of a ditch of 270m in length. This is probably a removed modern field boundary.
