Monument Number 438157

Hob Uid: 438157
Location :
Devon
West Devon
Northlew
Grid Ref : SX4882096810
Summary : Site of a bowl barrow on East Combe Common. Diameter 10.0m and 0.2m high. Probably reduced by earlier ploughing.
More information : Probable Barrow. There is a mound shown on East Combe Common on the OS 2" drawing at approx SX 488968. (1)

SX 48819682. Remains of probable Barrow. The mound, which is quite small, stands in a pasture field which at one time must have been arable as the mound has the appearance of being almost levelled by ploughing. There is no trace of any surrounding ditch. The diameter is 10.0 metres and the height is 0.2 metres. The remains are so slight that they almost warrant the description 'Site of'. (2)

SX 48829681: this mound is situated just below a hill crest and
is only visible when viewed from below.
Probably a barrow but too far gone to be certain. (3)
