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 bowl barrow located just southeast of the Dorset Cursus, close to the point where the Neolithic long barrow SU 01 NW 47 is incorporated into the Cursus' northwestern bank. The barrow is listed by RCHME as Wimborne St Giles 83 and by Grinsell as Wimborne St Giles 51. RCHME described it as a mound much damaged by ploughing, but previously measured at 60 feet diameter and 1.5 feet high.
