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.


Four Bronze Age bowl barrows and a small cairn are situated on the south east facing slope of Thorncombe Hill on the sandstone ridge of the Quantock Hills. Three of the barrows lie close to the Holford-Bicknoller parish boundary, on the Holford side, and are situated along a NE-SW orientated ridge between 325m and 315m above OD. A further barrow is almost at the summit of a knoll, between 330m and 333m above OD, and is situated adjacent to the East Quantoxhead-Holford parish boundary, on the East Quantoxhead side. This barrow has been recorded separately (ST 13 NW 142).
