Summary

Bowl barrow, one of a line of four barrows in the Canford Heath Barrow Group. A narrow trench is dug into the mound, perhaps the result of First World War military activity. The barrow is visible on 1940s aerial photographs and current Lidar imagery and was digitally plotted using these sources by the Dorset Stour NMP project.
