Notes

A group of five barrows, one of Saxon appearance. Historical references to the excavation of a barrow 'beyond' those on Pay Down where an urn and cremation were found may be associated. Field investigation in 1967 found some of the barrows within a forestry plantation and some damaged by the plough.
