Monument Number 35043

Hob Uid: 35043
Location :
Devon
North Devon
North Molton
Grid Ref : SS7463036210
Summary : A Bronze Age bowl barrow is visible on the north-east of Fyldon Common, North Molton. It is possibly one of the group known as Two Barrows, of which there are actually three (see NMR UID 35011). It is separated from the Two Barrows group by the Devon/Somerset border, and measures 19m in diameter and 0.6m high with a 0.3m deep hollow near the centre.

A Bronze Age barrow is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork on the north-east edge of Fyldon Common, close to the Devon/Somerset border. Centred at approximately SS 7463 3621, the barrow measures approximately 20 metres in diameter. Three additional barrows lie nearby, the group known as Two Barrows (see NMR UID 35011) and it is probable that this barrow was part of the same group. It was probably recorded separately as it happened to lie on the Devon side of the border, unlike the other three, which are in Somerset (4).
