Full Description

Four possible barrows were noted on North Molton Ridge, centred on SS 765 320. No earthworks were observed on a site visit in July 1979. Differential vegetation is thought to have caused circular marks showing on an aerial photograph. [1] It is not clear whether these include any or all of the barrows or cairns recorded under MDE13264, MDE13271, MMO3248 and MMO3249. [2]
