|Description ||Looking from the west towards a bowl barrow on Beaulieu Heath at grid reference SU35720169. The EH Record of Scheduled Monuments says that it is 25 m in diameter and up to 0.7 m high. It is flat-topped and was built upon during the military use of the heath during the Second World War. There are still some concrete remains sunk into the barrow mound. Now it is a bracken-covered tumulus, clearly visible from the B3055 road that passes by to the north. There is a linear earthwork nearby, with a ditch on this side - it too is bracken-covered and just visible in the background to the right of the barrow. This image is a two-photo composite.|
