Historic England Research Records

Monument Number 202873

Hob Uid: 202873
Location :
Somerset
Mendip
Trudoxhill
Grid Ref : ST7699043460
Summary : A grass-covered circular mound which may be the remains of a bowl barrow.
More information : [ST 7699 4346] TUMULUS [G.T.] (1)

This appears to be a castle mound. (2)

Grinsell considers this to be a barrow, and it was regarded as
such by Collinson and Skinner.
It is a grass covered, circular mound with a maximum height, on
the north, of 1.9m, but appears to have been dug away on the
south where it slopes down to ground level.
It seems too small to have been a motte and its appearance is
much more in keeping with a robbed bowl barrow. (See G.P.
AO/64/266/3). Re-surveyed at 1:2500. (3)
