Notes

A bowl barrow, located 700 metres north of Cocked Hat Plantation. The barrow is situated on a plateau above two small tributaries of the River Bain. The barrow mound, which is considered to have been constructed in the Bronze Age, is some 45 metres in diameter and stands to a height of about 1.8 metres. Material for the construction of the mound is thought to have been quarried from an encircling ditch. This ditch has been infilled over the yaers, although it is thought to survive as a buried feature. It has been suggested from aerial photographs that this barrow forms part of a barrow cemetery visible as cropmarks. Scheduled.
