Notes

A bowl barrow, listed by RCHME as Wimborne St Giles 85 and by Grinsell as Wimborne St Giles 35. RCHME described it as a mound 45 feet in diameter and 4.5 feet high. The mound appears "to have been dug into in the past". Along with its near neighbour, the bowl barrow SU 01 NW 30, it is located circa 100 metres south of the Dorset Cursus (Linear 41).
