The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. 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.
The immediate area just to the east of this barrow was designated as what was known as a Starfish Decoy Site during WWII. Basket Fires were ignited electrically from a Control Bunker ( Photo uploaded ) located about half a mile to the NW. The Control bunker is similar to the one near Osmotherley at SE 47375 97908 and listed on this Website.
