Notes

A Bronze Age round barrow can be seen as an earthwork on aerial photographs, however, a second possible barrow, suggested by the cropmark of an incomplete ring-ditch, is probably the result of a modern agricultural practice. The earthwork round barrow is scheduled and comprises a circular mound which measures 20 metres in diameter. There is a slight hollow in the centre of the barrow mound which may be the result of an unrecorded excavation. The incomplete possible Bronze Age ring-ditch is situated circa 100 metres north of the earthwork round barrow. It is suggested by several ditch sections which combine to form an arc that measures circa 20 metres in diameter, however, these cropmarks could be modern vegetational differences or cultivation marks within the improved pasture field.
