The tumulus next to the path by the terraces was excavated in 1925 when charcoal and wood was found. Supposedly the stones on top were once the kerb, and traces of the ditch are still evident. It was decided the barrow was of Bronze age date. It used to be known locally as 'The Kings Seat'. Hob Posted by Hob
