MMO2676 - Possible late prehistoric mound on north slope of Dunkery Hill (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
- None recorded
Two circular patches in the bracken cover on the northern slopes of Dunkery Hill may mark the remains of small mounds, possibly the remains of cairns of later prehistoric date. The possible mounds are roughly equidistant from the Kit Barrows and Robin and Joaney How group, and although at a significantly lower elevation, may be satellites to one or both of these groups located for visibility from the East Water Valley, to the north. The mound recorded here is centred on circa SS 9011 4270, at 350 metres above Ordnance Datum, and measures approximately 15 metres in diameter. [1,2]
