Full Description

A round barrow was noted on a site visit in c. 1980 on a boggy plateau. The barrow had a diameter of around 16 paces and a height of around 0.5 metres. This lies on the line of the old road Harepath, now visible as a grass causeway through the bog. The barrow is set on a skyline, and presumably served as a landmark. [1]
