Monument Number 424395

Hob Uid: 424395
Location :
Cornwall
Cornwall
Madron
Grid Ref : SW4270135048
Summary : A mound measuring 11 by 14 metres and 0.7 metres high has been interpreted as a barrow. It is overgrown with bracken and furze but it possible to detect that is has been badly mutilated.
More information : At SW 4267 3499, 60m to the north east of the Men-an-tol,
a mound 0.7m high overgrown with bracken and furze was discovered in
field investigation. The centre has been robbed and mutilated. The
top edge of a buried stone 0.9m long, and
orientated NE-SW, is
visible.
This is almost certainly a bowl barrow and the stone may be part
of a cist.
A 25 inch survey has been made. (1)

SW 42633500. Listed under 'Barrows' but desribed simply as a
mound. (2)

The mound, 11.0m by 14.0m is grass and bracken covered and has the
appearance of a cairn but should be treated with some reserve.
Save for the 'cist' stone, which is granite, the construction seems
to be of spar stone. (3)
