Notes

A bowl barrow located on ground which slopes to the north west and is situated towards the north west corner of a field which was formerly part of Barnham Heath. The barrow is visible as an earthern mound which stands to a height of about 0.6 metres and covers a roughly circular area measuring about 38 metres in diameter. In 1955 R Edwardson excavated a trench through the mound and found some post holes which were 'slightly off centre'. It is thought that the mound is encircled by a ditch with an estimated width of 3 metres, from which earth was quarried during the construction of the barrow. The mound has been spread by cultivation, and it is thought that the buried ditch will survive beneath the mound. Scheduled.
