Bradford Barrow

Round Barrow(s)


Bradford Barrow, round barrow (ST/981046) 3.5 miles NW of Wimborne Minster (A31, A341), 1.5 miles NW of Hinton Parva (B3078): track from Witchampton.

This is perhaps the largest bowl-barrow in Dorset. It has a diameter of over 100 ft. and a height of 20 ft. There is a surrounding ditch. Its conical outline might suggest that it is Roman. Otherwise, it would belong to the period 1.700 1,400 BC.
