Long Barrow


Details of long barrow on Pastscape

Mound to the NE of Oldwalls Shed, 140 feet long by 81 feet wide by 6 feet high; either a long barrow or two round barrows. Grimes describes it as an unopened long barrow, possibly Witts' No 10 (See SP 11 SW 5), but it is scheduled as a round barrow. Mrs O'Neil (1) is undecided. (1-3)
Visible on air photographs as a double mound aligned ESE/WNW at SP 12011041. This feature is under the plough and its present appearance is that of a long barrow orientated ESE-WNW with axes of 58.0 m and 32.0 m. From the E end it slopes gradually and smoothly down to its W end. The sides, are smooth and nowhere are there indication that it was ever two mounds. It has a maximum height of 1.6 m. Surveyed at 1:2500 on Antiquity Model. (4)
