Full Description

The possible remains of a Bronze Age round barrow is visible as the cropmark of a ring ditch centred on circa TM 401892 in Barsham parish. The cropmark is not terribly clear but the ring ditch is on average 30 metres in diameter. The southern edge of the cropmark is obscured by a field boundary. Two similarly sized ring ditches are visible as cropmarks to the south and one to the north (BRS 007, BRS 029) and a smaller ring ditch, possibly remains of a later prehistoric house, can be seen within the enclosure BRS 028.
