Monument Number 35718

Hob Uid: 35718
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Winsford
Grid Ref : SS8608035350
Summary : A small sub-rectangular mound of earth with a turf covering measuring 7.6m by 4m by 0.6m high. It is not thought to be a barrow, as previously alleged, and is thought more likely to be a mound associated with road construction.
More information : Winsford No 5, SS 86113535 probably a round barrow 10 paces diameter
and 2 ft high, but possibly a spoil heap from road making. Hollow in
centre. (1)

This mound is at the side of the road at SS 86083535. It is circu
lar, 0.5 m high and its surface is uneven and overgrown by grass and
heather. Probing suggests that the mound is largely composed of soil,and this is certainly so on its western side where the perimeter has
been recently cut away.
Although it may be a disturbed bowl barrow this is by no means
certain.
Surveyed at 1:2500. (2)

SS 86083535. Winsford 5. Probable round barrow listed, details as
Authy 1. Visited by Grinsell 6th April 1958 & 30th Sept 1961. (3)

A small, sub-rectangular mound lies on the northwest edge of Winsford Hill, close to Comer's Gate, at SS 86084 35355. The mound is predominantly composed of earth and is turf covered. The centre has been disturbed. The mound measures 7.6m N-S and 4m E-W, and is 0.6m high, with damage on its western side. It lies close to the road, and in a general area of disturbance, caused by vehicles and other traffic. The mound is not a barrow and is most likely to be associated with road construction or repair (4).
