On the western side of the crossroads at Crosshands.
Two Barrows marked on the map – both no more than grass covered ‘bumps’.
COFLEIN has these named as the southern and northern tumuli.
Southern – ‘A mutilated round barrow, 17m in diameter by 0.5m high, bisected by a garden hedge. When excavated two BA inurned cremations were recorded’.
Northern – ‘A ploughed down round barrow, 16m in diameter by .05m high. A central inurned cremation, set within a small cist-structure was recorded in excavations’.
