MONUMENT NO. 45211

DESCRIPTION + /

Site of a possible round barrow and a Medieval or later beacon on Thieveley Pike. The site was described in 1868 as comprising a basin, 80 feet in circumference, with many of the stones within the ring or immediate locality as being scorched by fire. Field investigations in 2003 found the beacon to comprise a much disturbed mound, 1.4 metres high, with a hollowed top. An Ordnance Survey trig station had been built on the southwest edge. Due to its location it has been also interpreted as the site of a possible upland round barrow later reused as a beacon.
