Archaeology Notes

NH76SW 4 7187 6113.

(NH 7187 6113) This is a long 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 264' long NE-SW, by 95' wide, and stands to an average height of 12' although the NE end is a little higher.

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

A large natural mound.

Visited by OS (N K B) 21 January 1966.
