Monument Number 451937

Hob Uid: 451937
Location :
Dorset
West Dorset
Winterborne St. Martin
Grid Ref : SY6661088430
Summary : Bronze Age bowl barrow (Winterborne St Martin 141) located within the area enclosed by Maiden Castle hillfort (SY 68 NE 7), towards the western end of its interior. It is still extant as an earthwork 20 metres in diameter and 0.7 metres high. It has a central depression indicative of early excavation, but no record of any such activity survives. However, it has been suggested by Mortimer Wheeler that the barrow (SY 68 NE 105) which Cunnington claimed to have excavated at "the East end" of Maiden Castle was in fact this one.
