Monument No. 221094

Three Bronze Age bowl barrows on Walker's Hill, listed by Grinsell as Alton 2, 3 & 4. 2 and 4 were both excavated by Thurnam in the 1850s, who reported finding "marks of interment after cremation" only. All three are still extant as earthwork mounds, Alton 3 with traces of a surrounding ditch.
