Round Barrow(s)


Both Coflein and the Ordnance Survey are cagey about this one. Coflein's map search function reveals it as a "round barrow" but the record suggests natural. The OS show "mound" in plain text. However, given its proximity to a number of other riverside barrows along the River Teme, it seems possible that this is a further example. Coflein also suggests it may have remnants of a ditch:

A mound, 39m in diameter and 2.0m high, cut by a road to the N, thought likely to be natural.

There are indications of a circular ditch.
