Suffix 31111
Date assigned 16 April 1999
Date last amended


The monument includes two bowl barrows on ground which slopes to the north east, approximately 250m to the west of an Icknield Way path. The most westerly barrow is visible as a low earthen mound, which stands to a height of approximately 0.8m and covers a roughly circular area with a maximum diameter of 55m. A second bowl barrow approximately 65m to the ESE of the first is also visible as a roughly circular earthern mound, with a height of about 0.7m and a maximum diameter of 53m. The mounds of both barrows have been spread by ploughing and are thought to overlie the ditches which originally encircled them and which will now survive as buried features. Both barrows are marked on the 1837 Ordnance Survey 1st edition map as two small contour rings with a further larger rise to the south west. These may represent the `Threhowes' mentioned in a 14th century document relating to Herringswell.
