MONUMENT NO. 36255

DESCRIPTION + /

A turf-covered stoney mound on Great Toms Hill is likely to be the remains of a prehistoric round barrow of Bronze Age date. It is has been surveyed both in the field and transcribed from aerial photographs, and can be seen to measure approximately 13 metres in diameter and stand 0.5 metres high. It is surrounded by a slight hollowing filled with reeds which probably indicates an enclosing ditch. A sub-rectangular pit of 2.3m by 1.4m by 0.3m in the western half of the barrow is most likely of World War II date.
