Round barrow to the south east of Moat Farm, Newton

Type and Period (2)

Protected Status/Designation

Full Description

PRN 60717 Round bowl barrow found when clearing a small copse of trees. Well preserved and now under pasture, in corner of pasture field. Stands 3- 4ft high and measures approx 25 yards across. Seems to have remained undamaged. Flattened top with no sign of rooting. Since it has been in a wood it may have been saved from serious despoliation. {1} Mound as described; shallow ditch and bank discernable on north side but petering out on roadside verge. {2} The monument includes a bowl barrow situated approximately 400 m south east of manor farm, standing on the crest of a hill on the parish boundary between Newton and Walcot. The mound, which is subcircular in shape, measures about 15 m in diameter and survives to an average height of 1.2 m. The top of the mound is flat and measures about 10 m in diameter. On the north and west sides of the mound are the remains of the shallow ditch, about 3 m in width, from which material used in the construction of the mound would have been quarried. On the north side of the ditch is a linear bank representing part of the headland of a field of ridge and furrow cultivation which was laid out against it in the medieval period. The mound itself may have been reused as the base for a windmill in the post medieval period. For more details see the revised scheduling document 22690. {4}
