(SZ 01438210) Thorny Barrow (Tumulus) (NR) (1) Thorny Barrow, destroyed. Quarried away before 1939. (2)
This mound has not been quarried away entirely, but fragmentary remains are still visible adjacent to a sand quarry; it is now impossible to give any measurement for these remains. This mound might possibly have been the result of a natural geological formation as seen in similar mounds in the proximity (see SZ 08 SW 11, 43 and 44). (3)
SZ 01438210. Thorny Barrow, bowl (?)barrow, about 65ft diameter and about 8ft high, on the edge of a broad ridge but almost unrecognisable owing to the encroachment of a large sand pit. (5)
