Details of Triple Bell Barrow on Pastscape

Monument No. 218294

A triple bell barrow. It is an unusual form of round barrow, originally constructed as three contiguous mounds, aligned east west, surrounded by a ditch. The most easterly part is either a flint cairn or a flint capped earthern mound. Fragments of skull and other human bone have been found in ploughsoil. The barrow has been ploughed virtually level and has been recorded on aerial photographs as an earthwork and as a cropmark.
