Notes

Three Bronze Age bowl barrows and the possible site of three round barrows. The three definate barrows can only be seen on air photos and measure 20 to 30 metres in diameter. One of theses was excavated in 1908. This uncovered a primary inhumation in the centre with a scondary cremation above it, possible Roman pottery and a thimble ring were also found. The three bowl barrows are scheduled, the other three possible barrows have been descheduled.
