WILSFORD 77 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age pond 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 12, 13 or 14). The round barrow was listed as Wilsford 77 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. It has an overall diameter of 27m and comprises a bank, 0.2m high, which defines a sub-circular ring around a central depression 0.8m deep and circa 8.7m in diameter. The flat top of the bank measures a maximum of 2m wide and its base is up to 10m wide. The southern side of the bank appears to overlie the low bank of Wilsford 77a (Monument Number 1119550), which must therefore be earlier. Wilsford 77 is the largest of the pond barrows in the group.
