Notes

A cairn, 60 ft. in diameter and 4 ft. high, in Haddon field, near the river Lathkiln, almost opposite to Conksbury was opened 31.6.1824 when a cist was found near the centre containing human bones, some cremated, and four urns. A hoard of 4th century copper coins, part of a glass vessel and lead ore were also found. The tumulus is now visible as a much spread mound.
