A)Long barrow. Side ditches ploughed out. B)Excavations between 1964 & 1967 revealed a complete long barrow of complex construction. C)Visible as an unsurveyable ground swelling. D)Visible on an aerial photograph as an white mark (1998). D)Note by Priscilla Wild. E)A geophysical survey conducted in December 2000 identified the western end of the outer ditches. However, the response form the eastern end has not been completely recorded as Nash Road (South Street) has bisected the survey area. At the time of this survey Nash Road and its verges span an area of approximately 9m and the disturbance from the ferrous fences affects a strip up to 8m wide, thus impeding the location of the south-eastern ditch terminal.
