Archaeology Notes

NH76SW 3 7178 6103

(NH 7178 6103) This is a long, low grass-covered mound, with rounded ends resembling a long cairn in some respects, but which Miss Henshall considers more likely to be natural than artificial.

It measures 170' long, NNE - SSW, by 66' wide, and stands 5' high at each end and about 4' high in the middle.

A A Woodham 1956; Information from A A Woodham to OS; A S Henshall 1963.
