Tegdown Hill Barrows

Barrow / Cairn Cemetery


This site consists of a saucer barrow and three bowl barrows.

Be warned, you will enter the field and get all excited when you think the old dew pond is the saucer barrow - it isn't.

The edge of the saucer barrow almost touches the dewpond bank and is located just to the south of it.

This is the first time I've seen a saucer barrow and it is basically a henge like circular bank with some humps and bumps in the center. It has obviously been very truncated by the plough. It has a much larger circumference than your average Sussex Bronze Age barrow.

The 3 bowl barrows are so faint as to almost be invisible, but are just about discernible.

A lone sarsen sits by the style at the southern entrance to the field.
