Notes

The site of two Bronze Age bowl barrows sitauted on a gravel promontory overlooking the Piddle Valley to the north and the Frome Valley to the south. The Ordnance Survey recorded the barrows in 1939, although only one barrow survives today; the other has been destroyed by gravel digging. This extant barrow has a mound composed of earth, sand and turf, with maximum dimensions of 16 metres in diameter and circa 1.2 metres in height. The mound is surrounded by a ditch from which material was quarried during the construction of the monument. This ditch is visible as a depression 1.5 metres wide and circa 0.3 metres deep. Scheduled.
