WILSFORD 76 (GODDARD)

DESCRIPTION + /

A Bronze Age bowl 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 76 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 comprises a central mound, 1.6m high, surrounded by a ring ditch except to the east. The top of the mound measures 10m in diameter and the base is 25m; it has a platform on its south-western side and a depression along the south-eastern edge of its top. The ditch is circa 4m wide 0.2m deep.
