Notes

A disc barrow and a sample of adjacent Roman road located 780 metres north east of North Farm. The northern side of the barrow was disturbed during the Roman period by the construction of Ermine Street and now survives as a low semi-circular platform 12 metres in diameter which is enclosed by a ditch 2 metres in width and an external bank up to 3 metres wide. The southern edge of the Roman road is visible as a slight linear ditch which continues either side of the barrow on an WNW-ESE axis and was utilised as a woodland and parish boundary in the post-medieval period. Scheduled.
