WILSFORD 80 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age disc 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 11). The round barrow was listed as Wilsford 80 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 is the only disc barrow and the largest barrow in the cemetery, with an overall diameter of 57m. The barrow comprises an small mound, 0.2m high and a maximum of 8.2m in diameter, which sits off-centre on a platform, 32.5m in diameter, defined by a ring ditch and outer bank, each of which are up to circa 6m wide.
