Coneyfield Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


From the EH record of Scheduled Monuments:

The monument includes a bowl barrow situated in Conyfield Wood, on the
floodplain of the River Blackwater. The hemispherical earth mound measures
21m in diameter and c.1.7m in height. Also identifiable at ground level is a
3m wide ditch surrounding the mound from which material was quarried during
the construction of the monument. This has become partly infilled over the
years but survives to a depth of c.0.3m on all but the north side, where it
has been cut through by a modern drain which runs alongside a footpath.
