A tumulus, situated in a field on the west side of the Lansdown Road, and about 400 yards north-west of Beckford Tower, [sited at ST 7375 6760 approx. (3)] was excavated Sept./Oct. 1909 and found to contain 27 cremations, some in urns, and one inhumation.(2)
[ST 7331 6780] A second round barrow in this field (Flock Down) is visible although greatly flattened by ploughing. Scatter of burnt bones produced by ploughing. (4)
The published feature is a much spread bowl barrow 0.3m high. Published survey (25") revised. A slight rise at ST 73276781 is visible when viewed from certain angles. It is undoubtedly the feature reported by Gardner and is probably the remains of a bowl barrow. Sited on 1/2500 plan.
