Cairn and possible barrow or windmill tump in Charlcombe.
Charlcombe 1. - A cairn, with a large hollow in the centre, at St 7130 6835, found by L.V. Grinsell in 1961. This is a crescentic mound 0.3m high at ST 71286838. It is probably a ruined cairn. To the south at ST 71296831 is a small circular mound 0.6m. high with a hollow centre. It is possibly a barrow but may be a windmill mound. Surveyed at 1/2500. (1)
