Possible Round Barrow 600m W of Cadborough Farm

Description of this historic site

The site of a possible round barrow, a mound usually built to conceal a burial. It probably dates to the Bronze Age. The barrow is visible as an earthwork and is situated 300m east of Poole's Wood.

Notes about this historic site

1 Two beorg features, probably barrows rather than hills, are recorded on the W boundary of Oldberrow in a pre-Conquest charter (see also PRN 5171). Each is described as Stanbeorge – ‘stone barrow’. For one possible site see PRN 1201. Field names, however, indicate a location slightly to the N, where the field ‘Great Stanberrys’ is recorded in 1820. A site near the ridge top, at the above grid reference, would seem likely.
3 A disc-shaped mound is visible on the ridge at the above grid reference, the interior of which is now a shallow cavity. This may be the remains of a barrow feature.
