TL 62087335 Two ploughed down barrows near Fordham (not visible on AP's). (1-2)
(TL 6211 7334) A bowl barrow under light pasture, measuring overall c23.0m in diameter and c0.8m high on the N side falling away to c0.4m high on the S side. A slight vegetation growth around the N arc possibly suggests a surrounding ditch; there is no central depression, to the mound, which appears undisturbed. The farmer here reports no serious disturbance to this field within his memory, (c40 years) and reports no finds being made or other mounds having existed. The barrow is situated on a relatively high neck of land between two old watercourses to the E and W, with the land dropping away to the N, giving the mound a localised prominence. There is no ground trace of another tumulus in this area.Surveyed at 1:2500 on MSD. (3)
Scheduled; number 258. (4) Scheduled listing (5) SMR 7568 describes a large Neolithic flint scatter and additionally two ploughed down barrows. The barrows are identical to those listed in SMR 7515, one of these has been scheduled (SM27168) while the other has been levelled to such an extent it can no longer be identified on the ground. (7)
