Notes

The remains of two bowl barrows located in Brown Down Wood on the eastern edge of the Blackdown Hills. The barrows are aligned from east to west. The mound of the easternmost barrow is 10 metres in diameter and 1.2 metres high. The mound of the barrow located 10 metres to its west is slightly elongated in shape with a maximum diameter of 12 metres and is 1 metre high. Ditches surround the mounds, from which material was quarried during their construction. These have become infilled over the years but will survive as buried features 2 metres wide. The barrows formed part of a group of four bowl barrows, the other two now destroyed. Scheduled.
