Name:Barrow circa 670 metres north of Church Farm, Bittadon


Circular mound, a probable barrow, is shown on the 1880s-1890s Ordnance Survey map and is visible on the 1946-9 RAF aerial photo. It appears to have been ploughed down in recent times but is visible as an earthwork on modern LiDAR images. An outlier of the barrow cemetery to the north.
