More information : (SS 75324561) Tumulus (NR) (1)

Farley Hill. A bowl barrow 8 paces in diameter and 2 ft high,
hollow in centre. Visited 1961. (2)

A mutilated heather covered bowl barrow, 8.5m in diameter, and
up to 0.6m high on southern downhill side. There is no trace of a
ditch.

Published 1:2500 survey revised. (3)

A barrow centred at SS 75324561 on south-facing slopes of Farley Hill. The feature is 9m in diameter and is 0.7m high on the downslope and 0.3m on the upslope. The site lies on open moorland, and is covered with heather and turf; some surface stone is visible. (4)

A round barrow, probably a bowl barrow as described by authority 2, is visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs centred on circa TM 75324561, Brendon parish. On the available aerial photographs the earthwork appears slightly ovoid in shape but is on average 8 metres in diameter; the variation in size from that noted by authority 4 is probably due to the barrow being partially obscured by vegetation.
