Details of barrow on Pastscape

[ST 7699 4346] TUMULUS [G.T.] (1) Grinsell considers this to be a barrow, and it was regarded as such by Collinson and Skinner. It is a grass covered, circular mound with a maximum height, on the north, of 1.9m, but appears to have been dug away on the south where it slopes down to ground level. It seems too small to have been a motte and its appearance is much more in keeping with a robbed bowl barrow. (See G.P. AO/64/266/3). Re-surveyed at 1:2500.
