MSO10994 - Possible Undated Mound or Prehistoric Barrow on Verney's Allotment. (Monument)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (2)
- None recorded
Small low mound 4 paces diameter and 0.3m high. Possible round barrow.  The area is covered with amorphous undulations and shallow peat workings. Several slight mounds and hollows are visible, but nothing that resembles a prehistoric barrow.  No barrow was noted here during a walkover survey by Cornwall Council, but it is within an area of peat cuttings, it may be that the mound is related to this rather than a barrow.
