The nearest postcode is an aid to location, and does not necessarily reflect the actual address of the monument. 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.
Group of nine Bronze Age (or earlier) round barrows, now levelled. All were thoroughly robbed in 19th century and re-excavated in 1966. Neolithic and Bronze Age sherds and finds on old ground surface.
Site sealed off - if permanent, why? July 2011. Questions best made to the Parks authorities! The site has reportedly remained open for centuries.
