Notes

The earthworks of a Bronze Age round barrow lying a few hundred yards south of Lechmore long barrow (ST 89 NE 6) and situated on the edge of a combe. This barrow measures approximately 12 metres across and is visible on aerial photographs. The barrow was opened by G F Playne in 1869 and the hollow in the centre is probably the result of this excavation. It measured 45ft dia by 5ft high, and contained a primary cremation in a small central pit. Finds included flint flakes and four roulette-decorated sherds, three of which, said to be from two distinct beakers, are now in Gloucester Museum.
