Ratfyn Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


A Bronze Age bowl barrow measuring 24 paces in diameter by 8ft high with no visible ditch. A dog digging on surface of it disturbed long bones, rib fragments and other bones of at least one adult inhumation, possibly two.

The Barrow in good condition though a depression down the south side suggests some attempt had been made at excavation in antiquity or possibly the 19th century.
