Notes

The buried remains of an oblong Neolithic long mortuary enclosure and an associated smaller mortuary enclosure immediately adjacent, a group of three Bronze Age bowl barrows to the north and a large circular barrow to the south east. Although the mortuary enclosures and barrows are no longer easily visible on the ground, their infilled ditches can be seen from the air as cropmarks and on the ground as depressions in the ploughsoil. Scheduled.
