Notes

A group of three disc barrows situated on a sand ridge on Longmoor Common, at the southern edge of Woolmer Down. The barrows are all aligned on an east to west axis. The western and central barrows are adjacent, and sit astride the spine of the ridge. The eastern barrow lies 20 metres further east and is situated immediately south of a slight rise. The barrows are circular in plan and each has a flat central platform surrounded by a ditch and external bank. Originally, all of the barrows would have had similar external dimensions of around 19 metres, although the eastern barrow has been disturbed on its northern side by vehicular traffic. The western barrow has a platform 13 metres in diameter with a ditch measuring 2 metres wide and 0.3 metres deep, and a bank 3 metres wide and 0.3 metres high. The central and eastern barrows both have platforms 10 metres in diameter, with ditches up to 4 metres wide and outer banks 3 metres wide. Scheduled.
