Very close by there used to be a standing stone called The Row Riddy stone now long gone.

Also a few barrows have vanished over the years due to the sand quarrying industry I believe.

'The Knolls' is the apt name of the big Victorian house in whose gardens these two round barrows can be found. They're 60 metres apart. Unfortunately they've both been damaged slightly by an Edwardian urge to build a tennis court, but they're still 1.5m and 2m high, according to the information in the scheduled monument record.
