Notes

A Bronze Age bell barrow, situated on the crest of the east bank, overlooking the floodplain of The Black Bourn river. The barrow is visible as a roughly circular earthern mound, which stands to a height of approximately 1 metre. The barrow mound is 12 metres in diameter and is surrounded by a berm up to 15 metres wide and a ditch. The partly infilled quarry ditch is visible as a hollow in the ground surface on the north and west sides, where it is approximately 6 metres wide and remains open to a depth of 0.5 metres. The ditch will survive elsewhere as a buried feature. The barrow, including the ditch and berm is 54 metres in diameter overall. Scheduled.
