Notes

Suggested Bronze Age round barrows (Grinsell's All Cannings 7-10). All Cannings 7 is probably the corner of an enclosure (see SU 06 NE 133); 8 is two confluent bowl barrows; 9 is a possible bell barrow, while 10 is also probably the corner of an enclosure. All features are plough damaged, although all survive as earthworks. Some of the mounds were explored by Merewether in 1849, although there is some confusion between the published lists of Merewether, Goddard and Grinsell.
