MMO3253 - Possible Bronze Age burial cairn or post-medieval clearance cairn on North Molton Ridge (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
A small circular mound is visible on aerial photographs as an earthwork on the northern edge of North Molton Ridge. Centred at SS 7847 3301, the mound measures approximately 5.5 metres across. Its location on high ground at the head of a valley and overlooking a large tributary of the River Mole is indicative of a prehistoric funerary monument, possibly a cairn dating to the Bronze Age or similar. However, it also lies adjacent to an abandoned field boundary, and could equally be a clearance cairn associated with post-medieval enclosure in this area. Further survey is required. [1,2]
