Notes

Bronze age bowl barrow situated in an elevated position with commanding views over Bideford. The barrow survives as a 24 metre diameter circular mound standing up to 1.2 metres high. On the summit of the mound a circular bank has been constructed. It is possible that the bank was constructed to support a stand of conifers. The ditch which surrounds the mound from which material for its construction was derived is preserved as a 2 metre wide buried feature. On the southern side a flatterned area confirms the presence of a ditch. Scheduled.
