Notes

Bronze Age bowl barrow surviving as an earthwork.A small oval mound, located on a steep west facing hill side above Myndtown, has been surveyed in the field and is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs. The mound has been interpreted as a Bronze Age round barrow. Alternatively, its oval shape suggests that it may be a Medieval pillow mound, associated with several pillow mounds to the south, in the vicinity of Black Knoll.
