Notes

A bowl barrow, located on a gentle, north facing slope to the south of the Little Ouse River, 100 metres south east of Woodcock Cottage. The barrow is visible as an earthern mound, standing to a height of 1.5 metres and which has a diameter of 32 metres. It is thought that the mound is encircled by a ditch from which earth was quarried during the construction of the barrow, and although this has now become completely infilled and is no longer visible, it will survive as a buried feature. Scheduled.
