Round Barrow(s) (Destroyed)


I have 'visited' this site a couple of times in the past but have never been able to spot anything. In saying that, it has tended to be summer visits. Perhaps these Barrows may be able to be seen in the winter months?

Coflein describes as site as:
One of a pair of round barrows (its neighbour NPRN 91939 is not scheduled) lies in a pasture field immediately N of the A48.
Clearly spread by ploughing it now measures about 35m in overall diameter but its profile suggests an original diameter of nearer 25m. Nowhere does its height exceed 0.75m.
On top of the mound is a concrete plinth measuring 6m by 4m which supports a feeding trough.
