Notes

The earthwork remains of two round barrows on Elsham Golf Course. The westernmost barrow, situated 150 metres north east of the club house, survives as a 30 metre diameter mound rising to just over 1.5 metres high. It has been landscaped with a flattened top and a level platform on its southern side for the golf course's 12th tee. The second barrow lies to the ENE of the first barrow, some 290 metres north east of the club house. It has a mound 25 metres in diameter rising to 1.2 metres high. It has been slightly landscaped to produce a level platform on its north western side for the golf course's 16th tee. Scheduled.
