Summary : A Bronze Age disc barrow has been surveyed in the field and is also visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs.
More information : SU 18934593; A barrow, probably a disc barrow visible on APs. (1)

SU 18924594: A circular ditch 0.2m deep, surrounding a slightly raised interior (0.2m above normal ground level) about 40m in diameter is all that remains of this barrow though there is no visible central tump and the outer bank visible on the APs cannot be seen on the ground. Surveyed at 1:2500. (2)

This disc barrow is situated on the edge of Brigmerston Field, on the false crest above the Nine Mile River. It lies between a long barrow (SU 14 NE 125) and a round barrow (SU 14 NE 126).

The barrow measures 62m total diameter, consists of a central tump 17m across and 0.3m high, lying on a platform 28m diameter. This is in turn, surrounded by a ditch 7m wide and 0.5m deep, with corresponding internal bank. The NW portion of the barrow has been ploughed down.

Surveyed at 1:500 by RCHME field staff as part of the SPTA Project. Further details can be found within the project archive. (3)

SU 1891 4594. The barrow was mapped, and its location revised, from aerial photographs by both RCHME's Salisbury Plain Training Area NMP and EH's Stonehenge WHS Mapping Project, using the photographs mentioned in authority 1. (4)
