Martin 2

Hob Uid: 214154
Location :
Hampshire
New Forest
Martin
Grid Ref : SU0638020600
Summary : Remains of a Neolithic long barrow
More information : (SU 06382060) A much mutilated and overgrown mound which
is probably a long barrow since the track leading up to it from the
south is known locally as 'Longbarrow Lane'.

It is from 37 to 40 metres in length, 9m. wide, 1.0m. in height on
the N side and about 2.0m. in height on the S side. It is orientated
approx. NW-SE.

A boundary hedge runs along the top of the mound which is considerably overgrown with trees. Much mutilated, it now has no very regular shape. Any vestige of a ditch has been expunged on the S side by a trackway and on the N side by cultivation. (1)

The barrow at the end of Long Barrow Lane was a familiar object to
open field farmers in the Middle Ages, who described the furlongs
in its vicinity by their position in relation to it, eg above,
below beyond or at Long Barrow (b). Four trackways or paths converge
upon it, and it was a point on the boundary demarcating the tithings
of West and East Martin. (2)

The remains described in Authy 1 are extremely vague and fragmentary,
but the evidence in Authy 2, the place-name etc and general topo
position of the mound strongly suggests this to be the remains of
a long barrow. (3)

This feature has been located and surveyed on Field Document. (4)

Description of 2.2.54 still correct. Published 1:2500 revised. (5)
