King Clump

Hob Uid: 397985
Location :
Greater London Authority
Richmond upon Thames
Non Civil Parish
Grid Ref : TQ1952070890
Summary : Mound in Richmond Park, sub-circular in plan with a diameter of 10 metres and up to 1 metre high and no traces of a ditch. It was planted with conifers in 1910. Slight scarps to the north, south and east of the mound may be associated with the World War II military camp which abutted the eastern side of the Clump. Greeves suggested that the mound may have been a long barrow, but there is no evidence, either morphologically or documentary, to support this. There is also no evidence of the existence of the mound before 1910 when the conifers were planted. It is likely that the feature is a plantation mound. The site was surveyed by the RCHME in January 1995 during the Royal Parks Project.
More information : [TQ 19527089] Possible round barrow surrounded by an
iron fence.

As described by Authority 2, but 10.0m in diameter and 1.0m high. Slight scarps to the north, south and east of the mound may be associated with the World War II military camp which abutted the eastern side of the Clump. Greeves suggested that the mound may have been a long barrow (3a), but there is no evidence, either morphologically or documentary, to support this. There is no evidence of the existence of the mound before 1910, when the conifers were planted; that the feature may be merely a plantation mound cannot be ruled out. The site was surveyed by the RCHME in January 1995 during the Royal Parks Project. See archive report and survey plan at 1:500 scale. (3)
