Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


Earthwork remains of a Bronze Age bowl barrow, lying on the south facing slope of Fonthill Down in an area of woodland known as High Park. The barrow has a mound 17 metres in diameter and 1.3 metres high which exhibits signs of slight surface disturbance, most obviously on its eastern side. Surrounding the mound is a ditch from which material for its construction was quarried. This is no longer vivble on the surface but will survive as a buried feature 3 metres wide. Scheduled.
