Long Barrow


Details of long barrow on Pastscape

SU 45583526. Long barrow. Scheduled No. 586.
A prominent, tree-covered mound. Overall length 44.0m., maximum width 22.0m., and height from 2.3m. at the north-west end to 1.9m. at the south-east end. The top is lower and broadens out at the south-east end, possibly as a result of slumping or despoliation. There is little evidence of ditch. Other mounds in the wood, especially to the south-west, appear to be spoil heaps from the destruction of the military camp in the wood, but the mound described above is larger and more regular than these and has the appearance of a long barrow.
