Pleasant View

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 19.3.14

North east of the Barrow at Crosshands – about 1 mile away.

The O/S map shows three Barrows at the crossroads.

Two of which are shown at the back of farm buildings – which I couldn’t see.
The third is in a field on the other side of the lane – seen as a grass ‘bump’.

COFLEIN states:
‘One of four barrows laid out along the summit of an east-west ridge. A circular mound about 22m in diameter and 0.4m high. Excavation produced evidence for a primary, uncontained cremation deposit and a secondary inurned cremation’.
