Drayton Cursus

Very clear crop marks showing the southern end of the cursus and the later Bronze Age barrow ditches. The photo is taken from the north-west and the crossroads (unnamed metalled road heading south to Milton, and Drayton East Way track) on the left of the picture is at SU487937.

Barrow Hills, Radley (Barrow / Cairn Cemetery)

Round Barrows and Ring-Ditches in Berkshire and Oxfordshire

Danger, Word document!

This is E.T. Leeds 1936 summary of his ditch and barrow excavations in Oxfordshire (some of the locations were in Berkshire at the time but have since been organisationally moved). As well as the Barrow Hills ditches at Radley, excavations at Cassington, Clifton Hampden, North Stoke and Abingdon are covered.

It contains a small but useful figure of the Barrow Hills ditches on a contemporary OS map - despite the significant changes in the area as a result of the expansion of Abingdon, the distinctive turns of the Abingdon-Radley road still exist and so help locate the site on a current OS map.
