Details of long barrow on Pastscape

SP 10141177 Crickley Barrow (NAT) Long Barrow (NR) (1) The long barrow known as Crickley Barrow has been so thoroughly dug over, probably early in the 19th century, that it is hardly recognisable. It is oriented NNW/SSE (as shown on the OS 1" map of 1830), and must have been originally between 250 and 280 ft long. The Salt Way crosses the southern end, as is shown by a lump in the road, and a sign-post stands on the northern end. (2-3) Crickley barrow has been finally eradicated. (4)
The long barrow has been completely levelled and no trace remains. 1:2500 survey revised on Antiquity Model. Crickley Long Barrow was destroyed in 1960 (a). (5)
