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.


A bowl barrow situated on the summit of a high hill on Galford Down. The barrow survives as a 21.3 metre diameter mound standing up to 0.6 metres high. There is a surrounding ditch which measures 2.7 metres wide and up to 0.2 metres deep, although this survives mainly as a buried feature. Several larger stones may be seen protruding from the mound which may indicate the presence of a partially exposed kerb, and the whole surface is uneven. Scheduled.
