WILSFORD 75 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age round barrow survives as earthworks and forms part of the Lake Down round barrow cemetery (Monument Number 218330). It is probably one of the round barrows excavated by Mr Edward Duke of Lake House in the early 19th century (Number 6). The barrow was listed as Wilsford 75 by Goddard and subsequently by Grinsell. It was surveyed at a scale of 1:1000 in May 2009 as part of English Heritage's Stonehenge WHS Landscape Project. The barrow comprises an almost circular mound surrounded by a shallow ditch, with an overall diameter of 17.8m. The mound stands circa 1.3m high: its top measures 2m in diameter and the base is 13.2m. The ditch measures circa 4m wide and cuts the southern side of Wilsford 75a (Monument Number 1119534). The barrow has been slightly denuded by ploughing. Other gaps in the ditch may have resulted from recent animal or cultivation damage.
