Medway
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : TQ7270065230
Summary : Bowl barrow
More information : [TQ 72706523] Old Fort [NR] (1)

Castle [NR] Site of [NAT] (2)

Published as Castle (Site of) on authority of O.G.S. Crawford with
reference to V.C.H. (3)

An isolated mount of unknown date. (4)

An earthen mound some 10' high and 30-35' in diameter at the base,
in a wood called the 'Shoulder of Mutton Shaw', has been variously
described as tumulus, castle, fort. A recent visit has not confirmed
the section published in V.C.H. [Authy 4] there being no sign of a
surrounding ditch or of the symmetrical depression there shown in
the top. It appears to be a simple tump of earth and chalk. (5)

[TQ 72706525] By the side of the so-called Pilgrim's Way [Ancient
Trackway] in Shoulder of Mutton Wood, on a prominent N-S ridge at a
height of approx. 250' O.D. there is a large circular mound.
It measures 24.5 m. in diameter with a maximum height (on the W. side)of 2.2 m., around the S.E.quadrant there are faint unsurveyable
traces of a ditch. At the cente there is a large hollow, probably
an old excavation crater and responsible for the slight spoil-heap
on the N. edge of the mound.
The feature is too small for a castle mound and from its general
appearance and topographical position there would seem little doubt
that it is a bowl barrow. Antiquity Model Survey made - position and
detail amended. AO/59/328/6. (6)

No change. Survey of 23.6.59 correct. (7)
