Notes

A Bronze Age bowl barrow on a slope known as Chaddenwick (or Charnage) Furze. It is extant as a mound approximately 25 metres in diameter and a maximum of 0.8 metres high. Grinsell has associated this barrow with one of a group of three excavated by Colt Hoare in the early 19th century (see ST 83 SE 11, 22) though this seems unlikely on the basis of Colt Hoare's map of the area.
