Burial Chamber


Details of Burial Chamber on Pastscape

[ST 5006 6439] Burial Chamber [GT]. (1) The Water-stone Dolmen, first described in 1896, comprises the collapsed chamber of a presumed long barrow. The mound was visible but with vague edges, in 1924. There are two fallen uprights with the remains of a third and the cover stone which contains a natural hollow and gives the feature its name. A number of large stones in the garden wall of Cornerpool Farm are said to have come from this site. (2-5)
There are now no traces of a mound and in all other respects the above description is correct. (See GP. AO/65/245/5) Surveyed at 1:2500. (6)
