Notes

Two possible barrows surviving as earthworks to the east of Cooper Quarries. Field investigations in 1971 found the northern barrow to have a diameter of approximately 12 metres and was up to 2 metres in height. The other was 9 metres in diameter, and about 0.6 metrs in height. It had been greatly disturbed by rabbit burrows. Several stony cairns had also been identified.
