Monument Number 437895

Hob Uid: 437895
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Lamerton
Grid Ref : SX4626079490
Summary : A round barrow, forming part of a barrow cemetery. The barrow mound measures 25 metres in diameter and 0.8 metres high. The south east side has been cut back by about 4 metres for the removal of earth and stone. A ditch 1.8 metres wide and 0.1 metre deep can be traced around the northern half of the mound, accompanied by a slight bank forming a rim at the perimeter of the mound. This is approximately 1.7 metres wide and 0.1 metre high, and appears to be a later addition, possibly for a tree ring.
