MONUMENT NO. 219228

DESCRIPTION + /

Bronze Age round barrow, listed by Grinsell as Durrington 65a. It was recorded by Colt Hoare in the early 19th century as lying just south of Durrington Walls (SU 14 SE 118), and he described it as "an elevated mound, bearing the appearance of a barrow". He excavated it to a depth of 11 feet without finding anything. There is no longer any trace of a barrow on the ground, although the approximate location of the barrow was subject to disturbance in the late 1960s during re-alignment of the A345. Wainwright suggested that the site of the barrow may have been represented by a group of pits or post holes designated Structure A during the 1966 excavations at Durrington Walls. Alternatively, given the location, Hoare may have actually dug into a remnant of the Durrington Walls enclosure bank.
