MONUMENT NO. 307473

DESCRIPTION + /

A probable Bronze Age bowl barrow is visible as an earthwork north-west of Mayfield. The barrow is located on a field boundary, which noticeably curves around the barrow. The barrow is thought to have been excavated by Carrington in 1849, from which a stone cist containing an urn was recorded. The barrow measures approximately 20 metres diameter and a medieval/ post medieval lynchet has cut away the northernmost 5-6m of the mound. The barrow is also visible on lidar and was mapped as part of the Staffordshire National Mapping Programme project. The latest condition of the barrow could not be discerned from the latest 2010 vertical photography.
