The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. 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.


A Bronze Age bowl barrow, extant as a spread earthwork mound measuring circa 25 metres by 20 metres and 0.75 metres in height. Ordnance Survey field investigation in 1986 noted "from a distance" a dark soil mark around the barrow which may represent the location of a surrounding ditch. However, this feature could not be identified close up in the ploughed soil. Scheduled.
