|Description ||Looking west. Pastscape says this...|
A bowl barrow, 50 to 60ft. in diameter and
approx 6ft high, was excavated by Mr J Blake of New House Farm, Shocklach, who discovered an oak plank at a depth of about 7ft, possibly part of a trunk coffin. It is suggested that the barrow covers an inhumation burial of E.B.A. date. (1)
The barrow at SJ 45454834 is oval in shape, 20.0 m. E - W, and 16.0 m. N-S. This shape is probably due to ploughing. It is 1.5 m. high, and grass covered with no ditch. (2)
It can be found on the Bishop Bennetts way foot path.
