Notes

A bowl barrow constructed in a west facing position on a steeply sloping chalk spur of the Hampshire Downs. The spur faces Old Winchester Hill to the south and overlooks the Meon Valley to the west. The barrow is roughly circular and includes a central mound, about 0.7 metres high with a diameter of about 14.5 metres, enclosed to the north, east and south by an infilled penannular ditch, approximately 3 metres wide and up to 0.15 metres deep. The mound is spread by rabbit-induced slumping on the west and north west sides and has a hollow centre indicative of past excavation. Upslope, to the north, the ditch and mound have been partially buried by a lynchet which crosses the spur in a north-south direction. Scheduled.
