The County Durham Sites & Monuments Register does not give a map reference for this site, so the map reference I have given is intended to give you a rough idea of the location of the Coundon Burn (and Auckland Castle Park), not the exact position of the monument (which does not seem to be marked on the OS map). All the SMR has to say about this site is "possible neolithic long mound" - the source given is "The Archaeological Practice, Auckland Castle Park, 1998". TomBo Posted by TomBo
