Full Description

Low circular ring bank with low central mound, apparently sealed by old field bank. Outer ring is 0.2m high and mound 0.1m high. Looks like a small barrow but the surrounding ridge and furrow (PRN 34248) seems not to run over it, although it is difficult to see. May be contemporary. [1] Not located by RCHME Exmoor Survey in 1997. [6] RCHME confused this site with PRN 34244 and may have looked in the wrong place. [7]
