Full Description

One of four barrows [SMR 906, 907 and 909] located in the vicinity of Ballidon Moor. This monument is the third barrow excavated by Bateman on the 1st August 1849. It was in the same field as site SMR 909. Half of the barrow had already been removed. Excavation recovered a few animal bones, part of a whetstone and a few fragments of pottery. (1). A field survey from 1966 only identified one barrow in this vicinity [probably SMR 906]. (3). Barnatt also concluded that this barrow was destroyed or lost. (4). This barrow has been located in the vicinity of 10:43 and SMR 907 and 909, but the precise location of the barrow is unknown. (5).
