Details of Barrow on Pastscape

[ST 67806945] TUMULUS [O.E.]. (1)
ST 67806945, round barrow, 32 paces in diameter, 7 ft. high, visited 1st February, 1959. Flattish top. Under grass; no
visible ditch. (2)
The barrow consists of a low mound 1.0 m. high surmounted by a flat topped steep sided central tump, which is an additional 1.7 m. high. The periphery of the mound is very vague and there is no visible ditch. The barrow would seem to be between the bowl and bell types, although it may be simply a bowl barrow on a low natural mound with the berm produced by ploughing.
The published survey (25-inch, 1931) has been revised. (3)
