The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. 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.


A Bronze Age bowl barrow situated on a gentle south east facing slope immediately below the crest of Barnsley Wood. The barrow has a mound 26 metres in diameter and 1.7 metres high, in the centre of which is a large depression that extends out into the west side of the mound and is presumably the result of an unrecorded antiquarian investigation. In 1938 Mrs O'Neil noted a possible cist in the centre, along with five upright stones of a retaining kerb around the east edge, but these features are no longer visible. This is a scheduled monument.
