SWANBOROUGH TUMP

DESCRIPTION + /

A low earthern mound, listed by Grinsell as a Bronze Age bowl barrow (Manningford 3). The mound has been identified with the "Swanabeorh" of a charter of 987 AD, the meeting place of Swanborough Hundred. The topographical position of the mound, on level ground, is felt to be untypical of a prehistoric barrow, implying that it may have been constructed as moot or meeting-place during the medieval period.
