[ST 8212 6115 and ST 8216 6113 (3)] (1)
In a field, known as Bed and Bolster field, Budbury, earthworks were visible and some in adjoining pieces of ground before they were levelled to make gardens (2). G. Underwood made hasty excavations in earthworks at Budbury before they were wrecked by a housing scheme. He identified two barrows within a circular enclosure formed by a bank with an inner ditch. [Sited from plan] E.B.A. sherds were recovered and a skeleton found but not removed. Bed and Bolster field contained an arc of another bank, 100 feet SE of the first circle. Grinsell lists them as undated earthworks and also as barrows and suggests an EBA primary inhumation in the larger mound. A fragment of a mound, at ST 8212 6115 is visible on A.Ps. (2-4)
No earthworks are visible in this area of extensive modern development. (5)
