Details of site on Pastscape

The remains of a Bronze Age bowl barrow.

(SU 23483329) Cobhill Barrow (NR). (1)
A mutilated bowl barrow, Winterslow 25, 18 paces x 15 paces x 4 ft high; traces of a slight ditch. Considered by P F Ewence probably to have been used as a siting point for a change in the angle of the Roman road (RR 45a). (2)
A badly mutilated 0.7m high mound is all that remains of this barrow. Ewence's contention would seem to be suspect as neither the eastern nor western alignment of the Roman Road intersects the barrow. (3)
