Thorney Barrow

Hob Uid: 457537
Location :
Dorset
Purbeck
Studland
Grid Ref : SZ0143082100
Summary : Possible remains of a bowl barrow, though it may be a natural feature.
More information : (SZ 01438210) Thorny Barrow (Tumulus) (NR) (1)

Thorny Barrow, destroyed. Quarried away before 1939. (2)

This mound has not been quarried away entirely, but fragmentary
remains are still visible adjacent to a sand quarry; it is now
impossible to give any measurement for these remains. This mound
might possibly have been the result of a natural geological
formation as seen in similar mounds in the proximity (see SZ 08 SW
11, 43 and 44). (3)

(SZ 01438210) Thorny Barrow (NR) (Site of) (4)

SZ 01438210. Thorny Barrow, bowl (?)barrow, about 65ft diameter
and about 8ft high, on the edge of a broad ridge but almost
unrecognisable owing to the encroachment of a large sand pit. (5)
