Full Description

SK 08 71: Kingsterndale, Round Barrow: Barrow adjacent to that excavated by T. Bateman in 1853 [SMR 8809]. He described it as being thoroughly destroyed. (1,4). The mound was not located. (2). This may well be a reference to the ruined Gospel Hillocks barrow (SMR 8808), which is close to the road and likely to have been seen by Bateman during his visit to site 8809. (5). Point has been removed from the map as the location of this ?barrow is unknown. (6).
