Monument Number 1043881

Hob Uid: 1043881
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Challacombe
Grid Ref : SS7038043120
Summary : A mound alleged to be a barrow was noted on air photos. During ground inspection it was noted that there are small irregular turf-covered mounds in the area but these are considered to be natural.
More information : SS7039 4312. A round barrow seen by McDonnell(a) on air photos(b)

The NGR given falls in rather wet, rough grassland some 130m west of the Long Stone (SS 74 SW 10. In the vicinity are several small, circular and irregular, turf-covered earthen mounds.
There are several barrows along this ridge to the east and west though they are much larger and more prominent. There is the possibility that some of these smaller 'insignificant' mounds may be prehistoric in origin and they are probably no more than natural tumps. No Survey Action. (1ab)
