Notes

Three surviving bowl barrows of a group of five which are situated to the north east and south east of Lower Bordean Farm. To the north east of the farm lie two bowl barrows. The northern barrow of the two has a sub-circular flat-topped mound 18 metres in diameter and up to 2.5 metres in height. Surrounding the mound is an infilled quarry ditch up to 2 metres wide. The second barrow, 13 metres to the south has been levelled and is now scarcely discernible at ground level but its external quarry ditch is clearly shown as surviving on aerial photographs as a circular buried feature up to 1.5 metres in width and 25 metres in diameter. The third barrow lies 100 metres to the south east of the farm. This barrow has been disturbed by ploughing on its southern side and truncated at its northern end by the construction of a road. The surviving portion consists of a low spread ovoid mound measuring 27 metres east-west, 24 metres north-south and a maximum of 2 metres in height situated against the northern boundary of a field. Adjacent to the mound on all but the northern side is an infilled quarry ditch surviving as a buried feature 2 metres wide. Scheduled.
