WILSFORD 75A (GRINSELL)

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 7). The barrow was listed as Wilsford 75a 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 a sub-circular mound which stands 0.9m high; the top of the mound is 5m in diameter and the base is circa 9.2m. In profile it is a very shallow bowl, with fairly straight sides and a broad flat summit. The southern side of the mound is notably straight, where it appears to be cut by the ditch of Wilsford 75 (Monument Number 1119507), suggesting that Wilsford 75a is earlier.
