Notes

Neolithic long barrow or long cairn. The earthwork and buried remains of a Neolithic long barrow, which includes an earthen mound of sub-rectangular form, circa 26m long and up to 12m wide. Orientated WNW-ESE, and is around 2m in height with a flat top. Its profile at the eastern end is irregular due to three mature treesaround which animal scrapes have formed. The roots of a tree on the southern edge are visible across the surface of the mound, this would indicate the presence of a burial chamber within preventing penetration. A shallow depression on the northern side may indicate an earlier investigation. The edges of what appear to be substantial stone are visible in 2 depressions on the southern side. The mound material is generally stony and this construction material would have been quarried from ditches flanking the long sides of the barrow. These are now infilled and no longer visible.
