MDE20240 - Probable post-medieval spoil heap (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
A doubtful barrow, probable spoil heap is visible near 'Kensford Barrow' at Kinsford Cross (MDE1199). This was visited by Grinsell in 1961, it was considered uncertain whether the site was a barrow or upcast from an adjoining quarry. In diameter the feature was thirteen paces, with a height of three feet. [1, 2] The site was visited in 1972 by the Ordnance Survey Archaeology Division, who recorded that the 0.5 metre high mound was almost certainly spoil from adjoining diggings.
