Notes

A possible long barrow on Beacon Hill, destroyed in circa 1863 in order to improve a cricket ground. Alternatively, the monument may have been a pair of conjoined bowl barrows. When removed, a grave containing 4 adult inhumations was found. Nearby was a small pottery vessel containing further human remains. Other human bones and potsherds were apparently found among the body of the mound(s). The finds are said to be in the museum of the Sussex Archaeological Society at Lewes, but could not be traced there in 1972.
