Notes

Bronze Age bowl barrow 12 metres in diameter and 1.4 metres high reduced from 3.5 metres high prior to excavation in 1912. During the excavation three inhumations were found (two adults and a child) together with flint tools, a whetstone, a crystal and a polished white pebble. A second inhumation had been dug into the side of the barrow. Scheduled. The earthwork remains of this Bronze Age barrow are visible on aerial photographs.
