A bowl barrow, known as Bind Barrow, which is situated in a prominent position on top of a hill close to the cliff edge. The barrow has a mound 17 metres in diameter and approximately 0.6 metres high. Surrounding the mound is a quarry ditch from which material to construct the mound was derived. Over the years this has become infilled but will survive as a buried feature 2 metres wide. The mound has been dug into and damaged probably by wartime activities leaving it uneven and mishapen with a circular area of concrete on the top. Scheduled.
The Barrow is easily seen from the B3157 near the village of Burton Bradstock.
Although it is a N.T. site there is nowhere to park on the B3157.
The O/S map shows a parking area near Burton Beach and a permissive footpath leading to the south of the Barrow.
Due to time constraints I had to settle for a ‘drive by’.
The Barrow looks to be well mangled and is approximately 10 metres across x 1 metre high.
