MMO1653 - Possible Bronze Age round barrow east of Yenworthy Common (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
A low circular mound visible as an earthwork on aerial photographs in a field to the east of Yenworthy Common is possibly the remains of a Bronze Age round barrow. Located at SS 81307 48046 between 380 and 390 metres above Ordnance Datum, the mound measures 15 metres in diameter, but appears to be very low in height, possibly less than 1 metre. It is situated in an area of agricultural improvement, and may have been reduced by ploughing. An excavated cairn lies approximately 200 metres to the southwest (see MSO7736) and a second low mound is visible 100 metres to the northwest (see MMO1654). [1,2]
