Details of disc barrow on Pastscape

A disc barrow located on the boundary between the parishes of Long Crichel and Tarrant Launceston. Listed by RCHME as Tarrant Launceston 46 and by Grinsell as Long Crichel 25. RCHME described it as a circular ditch circa 150 feet in diameter with traces of both an inner and an outer bank visible. A small mound is located within the enclosed area, slightly southeast of the centre. The linear earthwork ST 91 SW 40 appears to cut the outer bank on the southern side of the barrow.
