Full description

Untitled Source (Migrated Record). SDV4758.

Bowl barrow (diam 71m, height 15m); a prominent feature in the whole area and has always been assumed to be a hill. It has two revetments and a kist (7.6m long, 6.4m wide). In the se corner is something which gave a very strong reaction to the dowsing rod of major haswell, which he says he has never encountered before, in any other barrow. No.4 on plan (haswell).
