Possible Round Barrow at 'The Bank'

Description of this historic site

The site of a possible round barrow dating to the Bronze Age. It is visible as an earthwork and a water tank has been inserted into it. Another suggestion is that this is a windmill mound rather than a round barrow. It is situated in Butlers Marston.

Notes about this historic site

1 The Bank, Butlers Marston, is circular and rises somewhat abruptly from the surrounding ground. It is suggested that this is an early mill mound. It does not give the impression of being a tumulus.
2 Scheduled as Warwickshire Monument No 79.
3 This mound has a flat top and there are no traces of a ditch. It has been mutilated by the insertion of a water tank. Probably a mill mound.
4 Its topographical location and its small size (outer diameter 23m) and flat top (11.7m diameter) strongly suggest it to be a mill mound.
