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.


Bronze Age round barrow on the summit of Brown Hill. It measures 13m in diameter and 0.6m high with a central depression 2m across. Two boundary stones (one recumbant) are sited on top of the mound 1m to the south west of the centre. The barrow and boundary stone are scheduled.

User-Submitted Notes

English Heritage note says that there are two boundary stones, one recumbent. When I visited in July 2013 only the erect stone is visible. The recumbent stone is I believe now overgrown with vegetation and can no longer be seen. Poking around in the vegetation with a walking stick one can definitely feel what appears to be a linear shaped stone, which may or may not be the recumbent boundary stone
