WILSFORD 81 (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. The round barrow was listed as Wilsford 81 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 13.8m and comprises a mound, 1m high, with a slight berm on its northern and western sides plus possible traces of a ditch to the south-west, although this could be a plough line. A probable Prehistoric linear boundary is situated 10m to the south-west (Monument Number 218256).
