Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


5 large barrows form a well defined cemetery.
The largest barrow is at the southern end of the group is 80 feet across and 8 feet high. This has been built with chalk slabs covered with a layer of earth and capped with chalk rubble. A grave at the centre of the barrow contained a contracted skeleton with a food vessel.
