Details of barrow on Pastscape

(SU 11427127) Tumulus (NR). (1) SU 11437127. Bowl barrow, diameter 12 paces, height 1'. Appears to have had a sarsen peristalith, of which 7 stones were still extant in 1950. Merewether says that the barrow was within a circle of stones (8 existing and holes from which 4 others had been removed) of about 9ft diameter. The barrow contained much rude pottery, charcoal, animal bones and teeth of deer, oxen and swine. (2-3)
SU 11427127. This denuded round barrow is 13m in diam and averages 0.5m high. Nine stones remain but only two are set on edge and these are 0.8m high.
Published 25" survey revised. (4) The barrow mound was mapped at 1:10,000 from APs by the Fyfield Down and Overton Down Mapping Project. No additional information was recorded. (5, 7) Listed as Avebury 64a by Grinsell (2), the barrow had earlier been recorded by Goddard as Winterbourne Monkton 17d, although Goddard was actually unsure as to which parish the monument was in.
