Details The monument includes a prehistoric bowl barrow located near Ralegh's Cross on the summit of a broad ridge which extends along the Brendon Hills area of Exmoor. The near-circular mound is a maximum of 41m in diameter and up to 1.5m high, and is surrounded by a ditch from which material was quarried for its construction. Although the quarry ditch has become largely infilled over the millennia and is no longer clearly visible, it will survive as a buried feature approximately 3m to 4m wide. MAP EXTRACT The site of the monument is shown on the attached map extract. It includes a 2 metre boundary around the archaeological features, considered to be essential for the monument's support and preservation.
