Corston Beacon

Round Barrow(s)


Visited 7.6.14

From the nearby Dry Barrows continue about 1 mile west along the B4320.
The barrow is near a building on the left (southern) side of the road.

There is room to pull in at the field gate and from here you can see the barrow.
It is now little more than a ‘bump’ in the field.

COFLEIN state:
A barrow, 28m in diameter and 1m high, opened in 1927 revealing a large ‘sub megalithic’ cist set into the old ground surface, containing an extended skeleton accompanied by a bronze knife/dagger’.
