Most scheduled monuments are not occupied buildings and have no postal address or postcode of their own. In rural and coastal areas, the nearest geocodable postal address may be several miles away.


The site of a round barrow, located 50 metres south of Sour Leys Farm. The barrow measures 14 metres in diameter and stands up to 1.8 metres high. It appears to have been constructed with a large quantity of rough stone, generally cobble-sized, but up to 0.4 metres across. The remains of the 4 metre wide trench dug by Cecil Duncombe cuts through the middle of the mound. No surrounding ditch is visible, but one may survive as a buried feature, as has been the case with other barrows in the region. Scheduled.
