Notes

Barrow cemetery comprising five round barrows south west of Riggs Farm. The barrows were excavated during the 19th century and found to contain cremations, crouched inhumations and grave goods of pottery, a bone pin and flint implements. A possible mortuary house was also located. Field investigations in 1973 found two of the barrows surviving as earthworks, 30.5 metres and 35 metres in diameter and up to 1.3 metres in height. One other barrow was identified as a slight earthwork. No traces of the two other barrows were located.
