Bushy Barrow

Round Barrow(s) (Destroyed)


I have listed this site on the TMA as it needs to be explored.
Although a Round Barrow is clearly marked on early OS 25" maps as a Tumulus, when the site was visited by the Ordnance Survey godfather, O.G.S. Crawford in 1932, he couldn't locate it.
It is unclear if any aerial photographs were available at the time but O.S. Record Card 001 was created on the site and the later visits by L.V. Grinsell, ensured it got a listing in Volume 1 of the Wiltshire Victoria County History in 1957.
