Round Barrow(s)


RCAHMS record no. NMRS HY22NE 1 consists of three parts.
Mound 'A' at HY29592823 is 52' across (though half of the W side is no longer there) and 5' high with possible signs of excavation. It may have been surrounded by a low outer bank with a narrow and shallow ditch, but the indications have gone since the observation.
Mound 'B' at HY29592825 produced a cist in 1887, the 28' diameter foundation outline left has now disappeared.
The year after the war a Late Beaker cist was found in another barrow on the top of a ridge at HY29572826. The barrow has since been removed, though a large amount of stones from in it were placed at a field edge.
