Monument Number 1485013

Hob Uid: 1485013
Location :
Devon
North Devon
Brayford
Grid Ref : SS7262637532
Summary : A sub-circular mound is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs, located on moorland north of North Twitchen, Brayford. It is recorded in the Devon HER as a possible Bronze Age round barrow; this interpretation is consistent with its form and position. It lies within a group of four, possibly five, previously recorded Bronze Age monuments (see NMR UID 35037 and 1485011), and may well be part of the same group.
