Long Barrow


Details of long barrow on Pastscape

(ST 98382641) Tumulus (NR). A probable long barrow 75 feet long, 60 feet wide and 4 feet high, orientated NNE/SSW. It is on arable and the suggestion of side-ditches seen on the ground by Grinsell in 1937 was confirmed by him from an air photograph of the site after ploughing. (2) ST 98382640: This probable long barrow survives as an oval mound 22m long, NE-SW by 14m tranversely with excavation depressions at its centre and NE end. No trace of a ditch survives. Published survey 25" revised. (3)
