MONUMENT NO. 456797

DESCRIPTION + /

A Neolithic long barrow on Ailwood Down, immediately adjacent to the round barrow group SY 98 SE 5. The barrow is extant as an earthwork mound 32 metres long and up to 12 metres wide. It is 0.5 metres high on the uphill northern side, and 2 metres high on the downhill southern side. It is orientated roughly northwest-southeast. During RCHME field investigation in 1986 a narrow shallow ditch was evident around the eastern part of the mound but could not be traced around the western part. Previously, slight depressions had been noted on the east, south and western sides. One of the round barrows appears to impinge on the ditch. Scheduled.
