Notes

A group of four bowl barrows situated in a line, oriented north east-south west, on the edge of a spur on Foxbury Hill, Barnsfield Heath. Three of the barrows have a visible mound, which vary in diameter between 8.5 metres and 16 metres, and from 0.8 metres to 1.5 metres high. Each of these mounds is surrounded by a quarry ditch from which material was excavated during their construction. These have become infilled over the years but survive as buried features approximately 2 metres wide. A fourth barrow, approximately 20 metres north east, previously recorded as being 6.4 metres in diameter and 0.15 metres high, is no longer visible on the surface but will survive as a buried feature with a ditch approximately 1 metre wide. Scheduled.
