Full Description

A probable Bronze Age round barrow, centred on TM 26154634, can be seen as the partial cropmark of a ring ditch on photographs taken in 1980. The ring ditch encloses an area roughly 31.5m in diameter. The size of the ring ditch suggests that it is most likely to be the remains of a Bronze Age round barrow. The relationship between the barrow and the surrounding cropmark field system is unclear. (S1-S2)
See MRM 026 for the field system.
