Notes

Three bowl barrows on Trow Down. Two of the barrows measure 17 metres in diameter, while the third measures 12 metres. All three stand up to 1.5 metres high. The mounds are surrounded by quarry ditches which are visible as surface depressions in places. Hollows in at least two of the barrow mounds suggest past excavation and there is a Late Bronze Age rim sherd from the group in Sailsbury Museum.
