GALLEY HILL LONG BARROW

DESCRIPTION + /

A Neolithic long barrow formerly stood to the west of Galley Hill. It was destroyed circa 1900, something witnessed by a Mr A Cumberland of the Dartford Antiquarian Society. No finds were observed at the time. According to James Dyer "Air photographs suggest that the barrow was 300 ft long, but this is much larger than normal in the Chilterns, and 150 ft is more reasonable" (!). Ordnance Survey field investigation in 1973 confirmed that no surface traces existed.
