KING CLUMP

DESCRIPTION + /

Mound in Richmond Park, sub-circular in plan with a diameter of 10 metres and up to 1 metre high and no traces of a ditch. It was planted with conifers in 1910. Slight scarps to the north, south and east of the mound may be associated with the World War II military camp which abutted the eastern side of the Clump. Greeves suggested that the mound may have been a long barrow, but there is no evidence, either morphologically or documentary, to support this. There is also no evidence of the existence of the mound before 1910 when the conifers were planted. It is likely that the feature is a plantation mound. The site was surveyed by the RCHME in January 1995 during the Royal Parks Project.
