Summary : A Bronze Age round barrow was reportedly seen on air photos; however no trace of this feature could be found on the ground.
More information : SS 7432 3618. A round barrow seen on Fyldon Common by McDonnell (2) on air photographs (3).

No trace of this barrow was found. The NGR falls on a fence line on a fairly steep SW-facing slope at about 450m above OD. To the west is what appears to be unploughed but possibly improved uneven ground of mainly rough grass. To the east of the fence the ground is similar but is more improved with low pasture and only scattered rough grass. (1-3)

The photographs referenced were examined, together with others, as part of the Exmoor National Park National Mapping Programme in 2008, but the mound described above could not be identified (4).
