Lower Thorpe

Round Barrow(s)


Like Barrow Hill this is positioned next to Banbury Lane (part of the 'Jurassic Way' ancient routeway). It is smaller, only one metre high, but is located on the brow of a hill and can be seen as a prominent bump. There are traces of a ditch on one side. In 1806 the field was called Windmill Ground, so the barrow may have been reused as a windmill mound (unless that was just an assumption of its origins).
