Monument Number 35959

Hob Uid: 35959
Location :
Somerset
Somerset West and Taunton
Luccombe
Grid Ref : SS8644042490
Summary : A barrow was alleged at this location. The feature was not visible during field investigation. It is assumed to have been wrongly sited or to have been destroyed.
More information : (SS 86454249) Very small barrow. (1)

There is nothing visible in the area indicated either on the ground oron RAF APs. (2)

Nothing at this NGR included by Grinsell in his list of Somerset
barrows. (3)

Supposed round barrow - not found [during field investigation]. (See also NAR no SS 84 SE 94). The NGR given by Grinsell for this feature falls in an area of old (certainly not recent) peat cutting. A search among the residual mounds and balks, which cover a wide area, failed to identify it and it must be assumed Grinsell was badly at fault in either NGR or identification. (NB A misreading of Grinsell's NGR by Somerset SMR has resulted in the information being duplicated on their SOM 33684 and transferred to a location some 400m to the NW (see SS 84 SE 75). (4)
