MONUMENT NO. 210759

DESCRIPTION + /

A long barrow, 97 feet long, 70 feet wide, 14 feet high in 1812, but more recently 10 feet high apparently oriented east south east/west north west. It was excavated in 1804 by W Cunnington, who found a layer of charred wood and ashes possibly from platform cremations, but no primary burials in the mound, one accompanied by sword, knife, spearhead, umbo and other objects. All the finds seem to have been lost. It was re-opened by Thurman and the Rev A Fane in 1856 but without result. The mound is much damaged by ploughing and other mutilations and there is no indication of flanking ditches.
