Notes

A group of four bowl barrows on the south facing slope of Muston Down. The barrows each have a mound composed of chalk rubble. The southern pair of barrows are 10-13 metres in diameter and circa 0.25 metres high. The northern pair of barrows have maximum dimensions of between 10-15 metres in diameter and between circa 0.25-0.35 metres in height. Each mound is surrounded by a ditch from which material was quarried during construction of the barrows. The ditches have become infilled over the years, but survive as buried features circa 1.5 metres wide. All four barrows are scheduled.
