Details of barrow group on Pastscape

A Bronze Age round barrow cemetery survives as earthworks on Lake Down. The cemetery comprises 10 round barrows; including bowl barrows, pond barrows and disc barrows. The cemetery was surveyed at a scale of 1:1000 in May 2009 as part of English Heritage's Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project. It was also included in the Stonehenge WHS Mapping Project, using aerial photographs. Several of the barrows were excavated by Mr Edward Duke of Lake House in the early 19th century, although it is difficult to relate his notes to the individual barrows. See the individual barrow records for further details.
