Details of Barrows on Pastscape

(Centred ST 915103) Tumuli (NR) (sites of) (NAT). (1)
Pimperne East Group comprises five small bowl barrows situated near the E. boundary of the parish, some 250 yds. S.W. of Pimperne Long Barrow.
They lie on a gentle S. slope at 350 ft. above O.D. and are levelled by ploughing. They remain undated; because of their small size it has been suggested that they may be of the Iron Age or Saxon.
(A) Bowl (91521034).

(C) Bowl (91551035).
(D) Bowl (91571035).

The mounds are visible on the ground only as small flinty patches in a grass field.
Situated at ST 91591039 is a slight mound (F) 9.0m in diameter and 0.2m high. It is unlikely to be a barrow, but may have been part of a bank or lynchet mutilated by ploughing. (3)
