Full description

Bluesky International Ltd/Getmapping PLC, 2015 onwards, 2015 onward Aerial Photographs (Aerial Photograph). SDV362959.

An earthwork of the mound is apparent on the 2015 aerial imagery.

Environment Agency WMS, 2020, Environment Agency LIDAR Composite DTM 2020 - 1m (Cartographic). SDV364513.

One of three bowl barrows visible as an earthwork on Lidar imagery. This barrow is positioned between two barrows, off centre, located on the southwestern slope, east of Brooklyns. The mound has likely been effected by ploughing which would have caused a spread of the earth, therefore, it is hard to gauge the original diameter, but what is visible is approximately 35 metres across.
